In April 2014, we became one of the first research institutes to achieve the Athena SWAN Bronze award.
The organisation values the diversity of its employees, students, visiting scientists and collaborators and is committed to providing equality of opportunity. The diversity of our workforce is of critical importance in drawing together the talent, skills and experience on which we depend to conduct world-class science and support biomedical discovery. We are strongly committed to the Athena SWAN scheme to promote women's careers in science and to progressing equality.
" Our Athena SWAN submission has been an excellent opportunity to take stock of where we are, identify areas in need of action, and formulate a strong aspirational plan for the future"
Professor Sir Mike Stratton, Director of the Sanger Institute
