AOP was first awarded Bronze in August 2022 and following reassessment in August 2023 has retained the Bronze Award for a further 12 months. This is the first stage and it recognises commitment to advancing Gender Diversity.
We have set 3 Diversity Targets:
- Develop an Equality, diversity & Inclusion strategy
- Increase the number of female researchers
- Increase female representation on the AOP Management Committee
Everyone’s journey begins with Bronze and this accreditation recognises commitment to advancing Gender Diversity. As a business progresses, you can achieve the Silver and Gold accreditations. Organisations must submit annual progress reports with a full assessment each year.
