Athena SWAN logoAthena SWAN is a charter managed by the Equality Challenge Unit (now part of Advance HE) that recognises and celebrates good practices in higher education and research institutions towards the advancement of gender equality: representation, progression and success for all. 

Originally aimed at women's progression in Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Medicine (STEMM), from April 2015, it has been opened up to departments in Arts, Humanities, Social Sciences, Business and Laws. Athena SWAN recognises work undertaken to address gender equality more broadly, and not just barriers that affect women.
