Athena SWAN Charter

The Charter was developed in 2005 to support the advancement and promotion of the careers of women in science, engineering, technology, mathematics and medicine in higher education and research.

GCU signed the Athena SWAN Charter in 2011, and we reaffirmed our commitment by signing up to the new May 2015 principles, which cover arts, humanities, social sciences, business and law subjects, staff in professional and support roles and trans staff and students.

The University’s commitment to gender equality has been driven by Principal and Vice-Chancellor Professor Pamela Gillies CBE FRSE since 2006. Athena SWAN is key to addressing the sectoral and national challenges in relation to gender equality. Therefore our commitment to gender equality is an integral part of our Strategy 2030, our People Strategy and ultimately supports the delivery of our mission for the Common Good.
