BPA/SWIP Good Practice Scheme

I’m very excited to announce that the BPA/SWIP Good Practice Scheme, endorsed by the executive committees of both the British Philosophical Association and the Society for Women in Philosophy UK, is live!

The British Philosophical Association and Society for Women in Philosophy (UK) are pleased to announce the launch of our Good Practice Scheme. The Scheme aims to assist UK philosophy departments, learned societies and journals in ensuring that they have policies and procedures in place that encourage the representation of women in philosophy. A list of participating institutions will appear on this site from September 2014.

One thought on “BPA/SWIP Good Practice Scheme

  1. This is amazing. When I saw it this morning, I thought there were clear ways it could transfer to the States. I’m too tired now, late at night, to capture that thought.

    For various reasons, I have thought a lot recently about respect among faculty members, as opposed to having faculty gang up on another faculty, or having the power residing in a small group of cronies (as Naomi Zack has put it) who make very exclusionary decisions. I couldn’t really tell if the document addresses this – it was early in the morning when I read it.

    In any case, great job, very well done.
