Overview

The mission statement of our new Department is to create a diverse, inclusive and supportive academic community committed to promote scientific excellence and to nurture the next generation of researchers. The principles we adhere to are:

  1. Transparency and consistency
  2. Equality and diversity
  3. Professional behaviour
  4. Scientific integrity

The Department of Immunology and Inflammation's Equality and Diversity (EDI) committee has a wide remit and aims to support all staff by engaging across College and beyond on issues including Race Equality, Disability, LGBT matters, working culture and career development opportunities. The Athena SWAN self-assessment team is embedded in the EDI committee and we are committed to upholding the Athena SWAN Charter.

The Athena SWAN Charter was established in 2005 to encourage and recognise a commitment to advancing the careers of women in science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine (STEMM) employment in higher education and research.

In May 2015, the charter was expanded to recognise work undertaken in arts, humanities, social sciences, business and law (AHSSBL), in professional and support roles, and for trans staff and students. The Charter now recognises work undertaken to address gender equality more broadly, and not just barriers to progression that affect women.
