Athena Swan - Gender Advancement for Transforming Institutions

UK Athena Swan members to partner with Indian higher education institutions and research institutes on an exciting new project

Advance HE is working in partnership with the British Council and the Department of Science and Technology, Government of India on an exciting pilot project called GATI (Gender Advancement for Transforming Institutions). GATI aims to introduce a gender equality framework for women in STEMM (science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine) research in India, contextualised to the Indian context and drawing upon the successful Athena Swan Charter in the UK.

As part of this project, the British Council announced a grant award to UK higher education institutions and research institutes to work collaboratively with a group of four or five Indian higher education and research institutions in India to share practices around improving gender equality in higher education and research.

The Grant will fund six Athena Swan members in the UK (a mix of UK higher education institutions and research institutes) GBP 25,000 each to partner with Indian GATI pilot members.
