The Biology Department at the University of York received an Athena SWAN Gold award in 2014. Our Departmental philosophy is that poor practices discriminate disproportionately against women whereas good practices support all. During the 8 years of our AS Silver award we saw a rise in the proportion of female academics in the Department, and we also made considerable progress in embedding AS principles within our Departmental life and culture. I will discuss the AS actions that we achieved during this time, and our plans for the next few years, reflecting both on our progress as well as the challenges we still face.

This talk is part of the Juno & Athena Swan workshops and lectures series.
