The Institute of Physics Juno programme recognises and rewards physics departments, schools, institutes and organisations that can demonstrate they have taken action to address gender equality in physics and to encourage better practice for all staff.
A number of colleges in Ireland are already part of the Juno project and more have expressed an interest in joining. In addition, IOP are working with colleagues in CASTeL at Dublin City University in an SFI funded project to Improve Gender Balance (IGB) in schools. IOP Ireland is organising an event to support colleagues who are interested in developing Juno activities in Ireland.
