Gender equality

Athena SWAN

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

We currently hold an institutional Athena Swan Bronze renewal award, valid until 2029.

Our current award was conferred following a single institutional application, consolidating efforts across faculties, and absorbing previous faculty-level awards.

Our latest submission includes an action plan which focuses on improving gender equity at LSHTM in a number of areas: equitable student recruitment and experience, inclusive organisational culture and equitable recruitment, career development and progression for staff.
