Juno and Athena SWAN
The aims of Project Juno are complementary to the aims of the Athena SWAN Charter.
However, while Athena SWAN departmental/school Awards are dependent on institutional engagement with the scheme, a physics department can engage with Project Juno regardless of its institutional engagement with gender equality initiatives.
Athena SWAN Silver – Juno Champion Fast Track
Departments and schools who have already achieved Athena SWAN Silver recognition in the most recent round will be fast-tracked through the Juno Champion process, if they are already Juno Supporters. We will not accept Faculty-level Silver Awards as part of the fast-track scheme, as these are not sufficiently specific to physics to meet the requirements of Project Juno.
Once departments have achieved Juno Champion status they will automatically receive Athena SWAN Silver status.
Athena SWAN Bronze – Juno Practitioner Fast Track
Following a successful trial fast-track between the award of Athena SWAN Bronze and Juno Practitioner, the scheme is now in place and full details of how to apply for Juno Practitioner using this process are detailed in the Code of Practice for Project Juno.
For full details on both fast-track processes, please see the Code of Practice for Project Juno.
