Congratulations to the School of Physics and Astronomy which has been awarded “Juno Practitioner” status by the Institute of Physics (IoP). The award recognises the excellent work done by the School to apply the Juno programme’s principles.
Project Juno recognises and rewards Physics departments and schools that can demonstrate they have taken action to address the under-representation of women in university Physics.
It also encourages better practice for both women and men.
“We are delighted that the IoP has awarded us Juno Practitioner status and we are eager to move forward to become Juno Champions. “Our submission highlighted some areas of which we can be very proud, including increasing equality of representation in academic staff, and our higher-than-the-national-average proportions of women at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. We will focus now on career development for all staff and students, to ensure equality of opportunity for men and women at all stages of their career.”
