Diversity in IT


The purpose of the Women in IT Group is to support, encourage and promote the achievements of the women and non-binary/genderqueer people already working in IT Services and to encourage more women to consider a career in our department.

Examples of areas of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Identifying and sharing best practice around improving the gender balance
  • Connecting people both physically and virtually to share experiences and challenges
  • Creating networking opportunities for women in IT
  • Promoting the work being undertaken by women in IT Services
  • Identifying opportunities for collaboration with other Women in IT networks
