Athena SWAN gold award

The Roslin Institute has received a Gold Athena SWAN award in recognition for its commitment to women's career development. A copy of the Institute's application has been made available to download.

The Athena SWAN Charter recognises and celebrates good employment practice for women working in science, engineering and technology in higher education and research.

The Institute was granted the award in recognition of the additional efforts made, over and above standard University wide policies, to promote gender equality and address particular challenges for women within science.

The Institute received positive feedback on its commitment to training and development, strong appraisal and induction programme and local postdoctoral mentoring scheme.

As part of the SWAN process, the Institute has developed a three year action plan to progress with current initiatives and to further address challenges for women within science.

International Women's Day Video

For the International Women's Day on 8 March, we asked staff at the Easter Bush Campus about women who inspired them. As you can see in the following video, from Marie Curie to their colleagues, inspiring women are everywhere.
