Project Juno

The aim of Project Juno is to recognise and reward physics departments, schools, institutes and organisations that can demonstrate they have taken action to address gender equality in physics and to encourage better practice for all staff. Becoming involved in Project Juno will enable you to work towards developing an equitable working culture in which all students and staff can achieve their full potential.

There are four levels of Juno awards:

  • Supporter
    You start your Juno journey by endorsing the five principles and making a commitment to work towards Practitioner and then Champion.
  • Practitioner
    You demonstrate that your Juno journey is well underway. Qualitative and quantitative evidence is gathered and its initial action plan demonstrates how you aim to achieve Champion status.
  • Champion
  • You demonstrate that the six principles are embedded throughout. Further evidence is gathered and its action plan demonstrates how you will continue to further good practice.
  • Juno Excellence Programme and Award
  • As a Juno Champion, you develop a programme of activities in conjunction with the Institute to showcase and embed successful and innovative practice nationally.
