About us

The Athena Swan Charter is an international framework to support and transform gender equality within higher education (HE) and research institutions. Established in 2005 to encourage and recognise commitment to advancing the careers of women in science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine (STEMM) employment, the Charter addresses a broad scope of gender equality concerns, and not just barriers to progression that affect women.
The Department of Computer Science is honoured to hold an Athena Swan Bronze award and we are committed to continue to do even more to support women working and studying with us. The Athena Swan award is issued to departments that have excellent practices but also recognise and provide exceptional support to the women working and studying in them. Here, in Brunel University’s Computer Science Department, we have an ongoing  five year action plan in place to implement strategies to build on our successes and to further improve our gender equality practices.
