Equality and Diversity

The IoN is committed to creating a positive and supportive environment for all its members. It was awarded an Athena SWAN (Scientific Women's Academic Network) silver award, which recognises good employment practice and the promotion of women working in science, engineering and technology.

IoN is committed to providing a good working environment for all its staff and students and follows the six principles of the Athena Swan Charter. In April 2015 the IoN was awarded an Athena SWAN Silver Award which acknowledges significant and sustained progression and achievement in promoting gender equality. This is in addition to the Silver award held by Newcastle University

Moving forwards we recognise that are many aspects which may prevent an individual from reaching their full potential. Therefore the Institute has created an Equality and Diversity committee in order to address more of these factors.
