Equality and Diversity

The Department of Mathematical Sciences aims to support an inclusive culture that values the diversity of its staff and students.

We are supporters of the London Mathematical Society's Good Practice Scheme and hold an Athena SWAN Bronze Award. We recognise the advancement of gender equality for all in terms of representation, progression and success.

More information and support relating to equality and diversity issues can be found on the following pages for staff and students.

Athena SWAN

Our 2016 Athena SWAN Bronze Award application is available to read. The Department Equality and Diversity Committee is responsible for ensuring the delivery of our Athena SWAN Action Plan. The goals of the action plan are organised into seven areas, each overseen by a member of Department Equality and Diversity Committee:

  1. Student data (Evangelos)
  2. Postgraduate experience (Susie)
  3. Staff recruitment (Matt)
  4. Staff development and career progression (Lucia)
  5. Fixed term staff (Carlos)
  6. Organisation and culture (Tim)
  7. Flexible working (Chris)

Postgraduate study

We are committed to increasing the number of female postgraduate mathematicians in the department, to ensure that moving from an undergraduate degree to a postgraduate degree is a natural step. Read more about gender equality in our centre for doctoral training.
