The Department of Experimental Physics is a recognized Supporter of the Institute of Physics’ Juno Code of Practice. On 4th April 2018 we received confirmation of this from the Institute of Physics in London. The Department is committed to work towards addressing the under-representation of women in physics higher education. The Department will work towards achieving Juno Practitioner status within three years, which aligns with Athena SWAN Bronze status.
The aim of Project Juno Project is to recognise and reward departments that can demonstrate they have taken action to address the under-representation of women in university physics and to encourage better practice for both women and men.
