Physics and Astronomy

Inclusion Group

"I am fully committed to providing a working environment where people from all genders and backgrounds are treated equally and given the opportunity to thrive.

We are working to continually identify and address any barriers to women entering science and advancing to the highest levels. Working with the Institute of Physics’ Project Juno and the Equality Challenge Unit’s Athena Swan Charter we are striving to overcome under-representation of women in science."
