Faculty of Music


The Faculty of Music was delighted to be awarded an Athena SWAN Bronze Award in 2019 which recognises that in addition to institution-wide policies, the Faculty is working to promote gender equality and to identify and address challenges particular to the Faculty and our discipline.

Originally established in 2005 to encourage and recognise commitment to advancing the careers of women in science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine, Advance HE’s Athena SWAN Charter was expanded in 2015 to include those in the arts, humanities, social sciences, business and law, colleagues in professional and support roles, and for trans staff and students. The charter now recognises work undertaken to address gender equality more broadly, and not just barriers to progression that affect women.
