Women in STEMM at Anglia Ruskin

We know that we can't reach our full potential without drawing on the talents that everyone has to offer. A key part of ensuring we can do this is breaking down any barriers that may exist for women in STEMM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Medicine, Mathematics) based subjects. We are proud to have recently won our Athena SWAN Bronze Award and we are keen to continue with this success by supporting all of our staff and students.
