Diversity in University Physics: Statistical Digest 2010

This digest provides a concise overview of the diversity profiles of academic staff in university physics cost centres in 2007/08 in the UK.

It is an update of the Institute of Physics publication Women in University Physics Departments: Statistical Digest 2007, which used HESA data for the 2005/06 academic year and only looked at the gender profile of physics cost centres.

The information will be of interest to all relevant staff in university physics cost centres, particularly heads of departments and those staff members who are preparing Juno or Athena SWAN applications for their department.

It will enable staff to:

  • understand the profiles of staff in university physics cost centres;
  • compare the gender and diversity profile of their own cost centres with that of other university physics cost centres;
  • gain an insight into the changes in the gender profile of university physics cost centres over the last decade.
