Equality and Diversity at CEB

The University of Cambridge is committed in its pursuit of academic excellence to equality of opportunity and to a proactive and inclusive approach to equality, which supports and encourages all under-represented groups, promotes an inclusive culture, and values diversity.

This Department welcomes staff and students from all over the world and we are proud of their diversity. We have people from many cultures and backgrounds, and many different academic backgrounds.

The Department expects everyone to treat each other with respect, courtesy and consideration at all times. The University of Cambridge's Dignity at Work policy statement explains this commitment and what action can be taken if its principles are not observed. If you see or hear something that you believe is inappropriate, please discuss it with someone in the Department; this document tells you how.

Athena SWAN

The Athena SWAN Charter was established in 2005 to encourage and recognise commitment to advancing the careers of women in science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine (STEMM) employment in higher education and research. The charter has now expanded to recognise work undertaken to address gender equality more broadly, and not just barriers to progression that affect women.

The Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology has been awarded the Athena SWAN Bronze Award.

The Athena Swan Working Group (ASWG) is now working to continue to promote and develop a positive and inclusive work and study environment for everyone.
