Trinity College Dublin: Trinity secures four more Athena SWAN awards for commitment to gender equality

Four more Schools at Trinity have secured Athena SWAN Bronze awards in the latest round of awards, which 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 Trinity.

Professor Lorraine Leeson, incoming Associate Vice Provost for Equality, Diversity & Inclusion, welcomed the news. She said:

“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, underlining 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.”
