Gender equality

Athena SWAN

The Athena SWAN Charter is a framework, managed by Advance HE, which is used across the globe to promote gender equality within higher education and research.

We currently have an institutional bronze Athena SWAN award valid until 2022. Our latest submission includes an action plan which focuses on improving gender equality at LSHTM in a number of areas: recruitment (at senior levels), promotion and career development, family friendly and inclusive organisational culture.

Further information, including the action plan at the end of the Athena SWAN submission, can be found on the Athena SWAN page (intranet).

We also have faculty Athena SWAN awards:

Two Athena SWAN bronze award logos, and one Athena SWAN silver award logo

Working Families

We are a member of Working Families, a work-life balance charity seeking to remove the barriers that people with caring responsibilities face in the workplace.
