Athena SWAN

The School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences was awarded Athena SWAN Bronze in 2023, with the formal award ceremony held in Cork on November 8th 2023.


Athena SWAN (Scientific Women’s Academic Network) Charter is the internationally recognised quality mark for gender equality in universities/colleges. It provides a structure to help Universities address gender bias and to create a positive environment for all.

The Athena SWAN awards recognise the commitment of institutions and departments to improve gender equality. Congratulations to the School SAT, led by Professor Anne-Marie Healy and Professor Lorraine O’Driscoll, on the success of the application.

The award demonstrates that the school has strong evidence-informed plans to address barriers to gender equity and develop inclusive culture and practices. Our action plan addresses the following themes:

  • Supporting and encouraging existing females in academia
  • Addressing gender imbalance in recruitment of academic staff
  • Addressing gender equality for research staff
  • Addressing gender imbalance in (UG) student intake
  • Supporting carers and families
  • Ensuring implementation of the action plan
