Imperial was a founding member of the Athena SWAN Charter in 2005, which was established to recognise and encourage commitment to advancing the careers of women in science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine in higher education and research. 

Women from across the College have contributed to Imperial’s Athena applications, leading changes to departmental practices and cultures. Some of these women were highlighted in the Women@Imperial photograph exhibition, a selection of whom are featured below.
