Equality and Diversity

Athena Swan

The Athena SWAN Charter, launched in 2005, is a national scheme, which promotes equality and diversity in academia. The Charter is founded on six principles, including the requirement to change cultures and attitudes within organisations to tackle gender inequalities and discrimination of any kind to create a dynamic, inclusive culture at all levels and in every process. Cambridge holds a Silver Award and the History Faculty is currently applying for a Bronze Athena SWAN Award.

These pages, which serve to highlight the Department's ongoing commitment to equality, are a source of practical advice and information that will further the pursuit of equality and diversity in the Department.
