University of Wolverhampton Athena SWAN Institutional Structure

Introduction

The Athena SWAN Charter reflects the values of the University of Wolverhampton in its support for equality of opportunity. The Athena SWAN Awards provide us with an external benchmark against which to assess our progress. The submission process for Athena SWAN recognition provides a structure for the continual monitoring of gender equality and inclusion.  The  deadline for reaccreditation of Athena SWAN Awards is a further incentive for focusing minds towards reaching our goals.  

As an institution the University signed up to the Athena SWAN Charter in 2010. We were subsequently recognised with a Bronze Institutional Award in April 2013. Our award submission included our formulation of an action plan, the fruition of which is being monitored by two internal committees; The Athena SWAN Executive Steering Group and The University Athena SWAN Self-Assessment Team (ASSAT).

In addition to the institutional award we are now preparing to submit for Silver Departmental Awards in the departments of Mathematics and Computer Science (MCS) and Architecture and Built Environment (ABE), both part of the Faculty of Science and Engineering (FSE), and in the Institute of Sport and Institute of Psychology  which are within the Faculty of Education, Health and Well-being (FEHW). Each Faculty therefore has its own Athena SWAN Self-Assessment Team building these departmental award submissions that also ultimately reports through the Institutional Athena SWAN committee structure.
