The Department of Physics is committed to developing and promoting equality and diversity in all our practices and activities.

We aim to provide an inclusive culture for all of our staff and students, free from discrimination and upholding the values of respect, dignity and courtesy. Every person has the right to be treated in accordance with these values.

Institute of Physics Project Juno

Project Juno is the IOP’s flagship gender equality award for university physics departments and schools of physics, and other related organisations. Project Juno is an award scheme that recognises and rewards university physics departments, schools of physics, and related institutes and organisations that can demonstrate they have taken action to address gender equality at all levels and to foster a more inclusive working environment.

There are six principles that those joining agree to progress towards meeting:

  • Principle 1: Organisational Framework
  • Principle 2: Appointment and Selection
