NDCN was notified of its Bronze Award back in May. Head of Department, Professor Christopher Kennard said:

"[As a newly formed department] we have been developing departmental policies and structures largely from scratch. One of our early steps was to establish a senior management group, which currently has four women out of nine members. We have done our best to ensure that... we can offer the necessary flexibility with flexible working, access to nursery care and so on. However, the work required to put together our application to Athena SWAN has... provided an excellent opportunity to reflect on our achievements as well as our deficiencies."
