Oxford Philosophy Trials Gender Equality Charter Mark

Oxford Philosophy is one of 23 Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences departments that are taking part in a trial of the The Gender Equality Charter Mark, a scheme run by the Equality Challenge Unit (ECU).

The scheme aims to address gender inequalities and imbalance, in particular the underrepresentation of women in senior roles. The Faculty’s involvement is part of our broader effort to respond to an increased awareness among philosophers of the particular difficulties that face women in the profession. A self-assessment team consisting of six faculty members will work to produce a submission to the ECU in April in anticipation of receiving bronze level accreditation. In future we hope to progress to silver and gold awards, which are acheived through demonstration of sustained progress and innovation over a period of years.
