SEE staff celebrated as 2015 Women of Achievement

Two leading members of the School have been recognised as part of the University’s 2015 Women of Achievement.

Dr Andrea Jackson, Pro-Dean for Student Education, was nominated as a result of her National Teaching Fellowship and Professor Lindsay Stringer, Professor in Environment and Development, Sustainability Research Institute, was nominated following her 2013 Philip Leverhulme Prize for Geography.

The Women of Achievement awards help to support the University's Athena SWAN objectives.  The University of Leeds has been commended for its work to support the career development of talented women working in the traditionally male dominated fields of Science, Engineering and Technology (SET) in the form of a prestigious bronze award under the Athena SWAN Charter for Women in Science.  The Faculty of Environment is currently working towards a bronze award submission.
