Four Schools at Trinity College Dublin have secured Athena SWAN Bronze awards in the latest round of awards to recognise commitment and work towards gender equality.
Trinity’s School of Social Sciences and Philosophy, Trinity Business School, the School of Linguistic, Speech and Communication Sciences, and the School of Biochemistry and Immunology - join ten previous Athena Swan awardees, bringing the University’s total to 14 Bronze Award holders. Their success represents an important further step in Trinity’s ongoing progress towards applying for an institutional Silver award and demonstrates the work and commitment taking place on gender equality across Trinty.
Professor Lorraine Leeson, the incoming Associate Vice Provost for Equality, Diversity & Inclusion welcomed the news of these four awards and stated: "Athena Swan awards are an important mark of recognition of the effort, time and energy that Schools have made engaging with the Athena Swan process and through the award application itself- all related to gender equality and our commitment to a College that promotes and values equality. Sincere congratulations to the four Schools on their awards and sincere appreciation to all those who worked together to achieve them."
