The School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) at Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) is proud to be a supporter of the Athena SWAN charter, “Recognising commitment to advancing women’s careers in science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine (STEMM) employment in higher education and research.”

Activities in EECS @ QMUL demonstrating this support include the G.Hack tech gals initiative, the CS4FN magazine whose 2nd issue focuses on women in computing, echoing Karen Spark-Jone’s words, “Computing’s too important to be left to men,” WISE@QMUL, and MzTEK, which focusses on women artists working in new media, computer arts, and technology.
