Work in the School of Biological Sciences

dedicated to positive change

“Our School is working hard to increase transparency and fairness for all at every level”

-Professor Tamas Dalmay Head of School Biological Sciences


We take a proactive role to ensure people are treated fairly regardless of age, disability, race, nationality, ethnicity, gender, religion or sexual orientation. In recognition of our work in this area the School was awarded Silver Athena Swan status in 2016.  We continue to strive to make a difference to everyone working in and with the School.


Our Equality and Diversity team meets monthly to analyse and reflect on cultural practices that affect equality at all levels within the School.
