Report on the Athena SWAN survey

12 February 2018

The Research Board, in collaboration with the Social Justice and Inclusion Task Force, conducted a survey of Psychology Schools/departments across the UK regarding Athena SWAN. The survey was launched on International Women’s Day, 8 March 2017 and ran for five weeks, closing on 10 April 2017.

Respondents were asked to provide examples of good practice relating to various aspects of working life.

They were then asked about any issues or barriers they faced related to Athena SWAN and then any ways in which they felt the BPS might be able to support Athena SWAN.

Despite a low response rate to the initial survey, several examples of good practice have been identified which can be shared, particularly among those schools/departments who have yet to apply for an Athena SWAN award.
