Celebrating receiving our Bronze Swan
CMM was awarded a Bronze award in 2019

The School of Cellular & Molecular Medicine was awarded a Bronze Athena SWAN award in 2019. The Athena SWAN charter recognises advancement of gender equality: representation, progression and success for all. 

Advance HE’s Athena SWAN Charter covers women (and men where appropriate) in:

  • academic roles in STEMM and AHSSBL
  • professional and support staff
  • trans staff and students

In relation to their:

  • representation
  • progression of students into academia
  • journey through career milestones
  • working environment for all staff

"I am delighted that our School has received an Athena SWAN Bronze award, which was awarded in recognition of the sustained work by CMM staff to improve equality, diversity and inclusion in the School. From our coffee mornings to our Annual Awayday, we aim to create a welcoming environment that values the diversity of our staff and students and enables them to achieve their aims."

Professor Anne Ridley, Head of the School of Cellular and Molecular Medicine

School Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Committee

The School EDI Committee meets 5 times per year, chaired by Dr Bronwen Burton and Ms Kathy Purdy.

The Committee consists of staff and students from a range of backgrounds (including academic staff and students, technical and professional services) and career stages, all of whom have different experiences and perspectives to bring to the table.

Implementation of the School's Athena Swan action plan is undertaken by our School EDI Committee, led by the chairs of the CMM Self-Assessment Team, Dr Bronwen Burton and Ms Kathy Purdy. All colleagues at CMM can view the minutes and action plans associated with the EDI Committee on the school intranet.
