At Coventry University we pride ourselves on having a diverse student and staff population. From being awarded a Bronze Athena Swan award, to honouring International Women’s Day (IWD) across the faculties - see how we have celebrated diversity and explore our vision of equality through this special day.
I have also seen in Coventry University, they follow work ethics and gender equality and also, they are in search of women who are interested in this field.
