Dr Eleanor Bolton, Department of Surgery, attended the Athena SWAN Awards Ceremony in London earlier this month to collect the Silver award on behalf of the School.
Dr Bolton, who was part of the team responsible for compiling the successful submission, was presented with the award by Professor Dame Julia Higgins, Emeritus Professor of Polymer Science in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Imperial College London.
As well as receiving their awards, the attendees heard presentations from colleagues in other Universities who stressed the importance of not losing momentum in the weeks and months ahead. Professor Fiona Karet, who leads the School’s Athena SWAN Governance Group says, “We now have a great deal of work to do to make our action plan a reality and ensure the successful renewal of our award in 2016.”
