The Athena Committee has now been merged into the EDI Forum. The information below is only kept for reference and is not being updated.

The Athena Committee is operationally-focused. Its main purpose is to ensure that changes are made to departmental practices and culture so that departments gain, or retain, Athena Swan awards, increasing the award level where possible.

The Athena Committee is chaired by Professor Stephen Curry, Assistant Provost (EDI), and membership includes the Faculty Ambassadors for Women, the College Athena SWAN Coordinator, and representatives from each academic department: Athena Committee Terms of Reference (pdf).
