Athena SWAN award

last modified Jun 25, 2019 12:48 PM

The Department is delighted to announce its Athena SWAN Bronze award from the Equality Challenge Unit. The award is in recognition of  our efforts  to recruit  female students and staff, support their ambitions and promote their careers. We hope that this encourages even more women and members of minority groups to apply to be here and be at the vanguard of our work in Food Security, Biotechnology and Conservation.


We are delighted to announce that we have retained the Athena Swan Bronze award for 2019.

The Department has carried out a comprehensive COVID-19 risk assessment process and has opened to allow research work to take place. To ensure the safety of our staff, a range of measures to reduce building occupancy and allow strict social distancing have been introduced, including increased cleaning and hygiene regimes.
