Athena SWAN

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:

Clara• 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 JohnstonJulie AhringerJon PinesEmmanuelle VireAnnabel GriffithsAnn CartwrightDiane FosterSuzanne Campbell and Kevin Coutinho) will encourage participation and assess our progress prior to application in April 2014.


• Gurdon Institute Bronze Award application - April 2014
