Diversity Strategy

SEPnet is committed to equality and diversity in all aspects of its work. We support SEPnet partners to adopt best practice in gender equality by signing up to the Institute of Physics’ Project Juno and applying for Athena SWAN award recognition.

We work closely with equality organisations such as WISE and Generating Genius to address issues related to the under-representation of certain groups in physics.

  • The Diversity Strategy will enhance the research environment by ensuring that physics can draw on the full range of talent including currently under-represented groups. The partnership is developing a network-wide strategy to address the issue of diversity within the research environment through engagement with Project Juno and/or the Athena SWAN Charter.
  • Our Extended Widening Participation strategy will ensure that studying physics at UG and PG levels becomes a choice for currently under-represented groups in our community by identifying best practice outside and within the network, and disseminating that practice across the community.
