It was launched by Dame Jocelyn Bell-Burnell on Thursday 9th June at the Royal Society of Edinburgh.

The launch was followed by a panel discussion and workshop on “Athena SWAN moves to the Arts & Humanities,” where we reflected on the Athena SWAN experience of the STEMM subjects, and consider the likely effects of its extension to Arts & Humanities.

The Academic Women Now: experiences of mid-career academic women in Scotland project was managed by Sharon Ashbrook (Chemistry), Ineke De Moortel (Mathematics) and Aileen Fyfe (History), all of the University of St Andrews.  The publication may be downloaded (pdf) here.
