Equality and Diversity

The School of Chemistry is committed to advancing the careers of women in science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine (STEMM). We strive to achieve gender equality in the School and recognise that proactive actions are required to achieve this.

The School provides an egalitarian working environment for everyone, at all levels. We support the progression of our staff and students in academia and at every career transition point.

A reflection of the Schools ethos for equality and diversity (E&D) is our achievement of the Athena SWAN Silver Award. The University of Edinburgh, as an institution, holds a Silver Award.

The Award must be renewed every 3 years. You can keep up to date with the progress of our renewal and find out about the diverse range of initiatives currently going on in the School by looking through the tabs in this web page.
