Introduction to Gender Initiatives at Keele

Since September 2005 the University has been a Member of the Athena SWAN Charter. The University and its Schools continue to strive towards higher levels of award recognition.

See some of Keele's male staff and students talking about gender equality:

Keele University is committed to the principles of the Athena SWAN Charter and values equality and diversity across its workforce.  To support these principles the University has a Self-Assessment Team (SAT) in place to co-ordinate and develop initiatives that will address the underrepresentation of women in STEMM and support and encourage their career progression. 

Keele University sees membership of the Charter, with its bronze, silver and gold SWAN recognition awards, as working towards sustaining equitable working environments enabling universities to identify themselves as employers of choice, not only to their staff, but to students, stakeholders, research councils and industry.   Keele University currently holds an institutional Athena SWAN Bronze award, 3 departmental Silver awards and 3 departmental Bronze awards.
