Athena SWAN at Bangor

Bangor University is fully committed to the principles of the Athena SWAN charter and is working towards ensuring that these principles become embedded within the University’s policies, practices, actions plans and culture.

Bangor University has held an Athena SWAN Bronze award since 2011 (renewed in 2014 and 2018). The University Athena SWAN Working Group is chaired by the Pro Vice-Chancellor for Research & Impact and reports to the University’s Equality & Diversity Strategy Group. The group is made up of the Athena SWAN leads from each School, the Athena SWAN & Concordat Manager, the Student Equality & Diversity Officer and a Contract Research staff representative.

Three Schools have achieved Bronze awards - the School Ocean Sciences, the School of Psychology and the Bangor Business School.

The Athena SWAN charter has recently undergone an independent review; the report of the review was published in March 2020. The report recommends a number of substantial changes to the Charter and its implementation. Advance HE has accepted all recommendations and are now working on implementing the changes and transforming the charter.
