IADT Dún Laoghaire has been awarded an Athena Swan Bronze Institution Award following a successful application in June 2022. Applications are reviewed by an external panel of peers in the Irish higher education sector and overseen by Advance HE.
The Institute is proud to be the first higher education institution (HEI) in Ireland to achieve an award under the new Athena Swan Charter principles for Ireland. Published in 2021 following a national consultation, the new Charter offers a framework for progressing equality in higher education and research that is unique to Ireland. The objective is to support impactful and sustainable gender equality work for all categories of staff and the student population and to build capacity for evidence-based equality work across the equality grounds enshrined in Irish legislation. The 2021 Charter also aligns with the requirements for Horizon Europe.
