Many of Imperial's academic departments across the four Faculties have achieved gold, silver or bronze standards in the Athena SWAN Charter for supporting gender equality in higher education. We have also been awarded an institutional silver award for the whole of the College.

We are proud that this is also reflected in the number of Imperial's high-achieving female alumni, and we’ve gathered just a small sample of stories to celebrate our former female students leading the way in everything from health and medicine to science and engineering.
