Our progress on equality issues reflects our pursuit of excellence in all our other work which means going beyond minimum expectations in a range of initiatives. This includes:
- Charter membership of the Athena SWAN Charter for Women in Science. The ICR has committed to progress from our current Bronze Award to the Silver Award for this by 2016
- Support and adjustments for disabled students and staff
- Network of trained independent harassment advisers.
Within the ICR, these activities are taken forward through our Equality Excellence programme which combines our equality initiatives and highlights how they support the scientific work of the ICR.
Our equality report outlines in detail the steps we are taking to promote equality, and eliminate any discriminatory practice within the ICR.
Our equal opportunities policy statement provides a platform for initiatives directed towards supporting the work of the ICR.
