Medway achieves Athena SWAN Bronze award
Medway School of Pharmacy successful in achieving an Athena SWAN bronze award
The school has been successful in achieving an Athena SWAN bronze award; this is great news for the school. We would like to thank the members of the MSoP AS committee for their input into the submission.
113 higher education institutions, research institutes and individual schools and departments will receive an ECU Athena SWAN award. The awards recognise commitment to advancing women’s careers in science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine in higher education and research.
It is the highest number of awards presented to date, with the success rate increasing in this round compared to the last from 69 per cent to 73 per cent. Also in this round, the Babraham institute became only the second research institute to receive the prestigious silver institution award, joining the John Innes Centre.
The awards ceremony was held on 15 June 2015 at the University of Greenwich.
