Equality and Diversity
The Institute of Physics (IOP) has pioneered gender equality issues through its Juno Project
The project's goal is to take action to address the under-representation of women in university physics and to encourage best practice for all. The Juno mission at Aberystwyth is led by Professor John Gough who chairs the Equality and Diversity/ Juno Committee.
Juno Project - Six Principles
Project Juno is underpinned by the following six principles
- A robust organisational framework to deliver equality of opportunity and reward
- Appointment and selection processes and procedures that encourage men and women to apply for academic posts at all levels
- Departmental structures and systems which support and encourage the career progression and promotion of all staff and enable men and women to progress and continue in their careers
- Departmental organisation, structure, management arrangements and culture that are open, inclusive and transparent and encourage the participation of all staff
- Flexible approaches and provisions that enable individuals, at all career and life stages, to optimise their contribution to their department, institution and to Science, Engineering and Technology ( SET )
- An environment where professional conduct is embedded into departmental culture and behaviour.
The Department has Practitioner Status, which means that we have met principle 1 and are moving to implement all six principles.
