We are committed to addressing the imbalance by tackling barriers to progression by providing personalised development, rolling out unconscious bias training, and further developing our award-winning family friendly initiatives. The College’s senior boards, the Provost’s and President’s Boards, have participated in training from a leading equality consultancy. As a result of this, the boards have agreed an action plan, which will continue to improve fairness and opportunity at Imperial College.

In terms of recruitment, we have introduced a ‘Know Your Pool’ initiative which enable us to identify appropriately qualified women and encourage their application for roles at all levels within Imperial. 

We are also seeking to tackle the gender imbalance in STEM generally through outreach work with schools.

Please see below a comprehensive list of the College’s activity and initiatives in these areas.
