The Gurdon Institute supports Athena SWAN
A charter for women in science
The Athena SWAN charter, launched in June 2005, recognises and celebrates institutions' commitment to advancing women's careers in science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine (STEMM) employment in academia.
Gurdon Institute commitment
The Institute is determined in its commitment to support the aims of the charter, and is currently working to achieve a Bronze Award which requires us to:
• Demonstrate that action has been taken in response to previously identified challenges.
• Demonstrate particular challenges and plan activities for the future.
• Demonstrate the impact of the actions implemented.
An internal committee (Daniel St Johnston, Julie Ahringer, Jon Pines, Emmanuelle Vire, Annabel Griffiths, Ann Cartwright, Diane Foster, Suzanne Campbell and Kevin Coutinho) will encourage participation and assess our progress prior to application in April 2014.
