Professor Hazel Hall leads successful bid for Athena SWAN bronze award


Edinburgh Napier University has been granted a bronze Athena SWAN award.

Athena SWAN is the Equality Challenge Unit’s charter for women in science. The charter recognises the commitment of universities to the advancement of women’s careers in science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and medicine (STEMM). As part of its work the Equality Challenge Unit grants bronze, silver and gold awards to organisations that can demonstrate increasing levels of good practice in recruiting, retaining and promoting women in STEMM in higher education.

The University's bid for the award was prepared in 2014 by a team led by Professor Hazel Hall. Also on the team from the School of Computing were Sally Smith and Peter Cruickshank.

For further information about the award please see the University news item University recognised in Athena SWAN scheme, and the post about the work towards the award on Hazel Hall's blog.
