Equality, Diversity & Inclusion


In June this year, Advance HE launched a new transformed Athena Swan Charter. The newly enhanced framework was developed in full consultation with sector practitioners, EDI Champions and specialist sub-groups overseen by the Athena Swan Governance Committee. The framework has been transformed based on the recommendations made in the Independent Review led by the Athena Swan Steering Group. 

Those who apply for Athena Swan awards under the transformed charter can expect to benefit from:

  • A reduction in administrative burden including a halving of data requirements.
  • Advance HE moving from being in a position of assessment to a developmental and supporting approach
  • A paradigm shift from prescription to autonomy and flexibility

Join the ED&I Team to hear about the new scheme in more detail, and how this will affect your future applications.

For more information, and to view the new forms, information pack and resources please visit the Athena Swan Resources Sharepoint folder.
