The University of Lincoln has been recognised for its commitment to advancing women’s careers in STEMM academia by achieving its Bronze Award as part of the Athena SWAN Charter. With research showing that men in the UK are six times more likely than women to work in science-related careers, the University of Lincoln has pledged to ‘create a level playing field for all’ and develop employment practices to advance the representation, and further support the careers of women in science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and medicine (STEMM).
I am delighted that the University of Lincoln has been recognised for its commitment to combating the underrepresentation of women in these vital subjects, while providing the correct mechanisms to advance the careers of women in STEMM research and academia
