Equality and Diversity
Imperial’s reputation as an international centre of research and teaching excellence has been built upon the achievements of diverse staff working over many decades. Within the Department of Computing, we take pride in the diversity of our staff and students and recognise that a diverse set of backgrounds, experiences and perspectives is essential in driving innovation forward.
Diversity is positively encouraged and embedded within our teaching and learning strategy. As well as an active Women in Computing group, Computing society (DoCSoc) and newly formed LGBTQ+ Allies Network, we have an Equality, Diversity and Education Committee consisting of undergraduate and postgraduate representatives, academics, support staff and visiting members from across Faculty who are dedicated to bringing about positive change.
We actively promote a friendly and inclusive culture and believe that the dignity and individuality of each person should be respected. Freedom of expression and being able to be yourself at work is something that we strongly encourage, and we strive to have an inclusive work environment where everyone feels valued and is recognised for their contributions and talents.
If you would like to discuss any aspects of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion within the Department of Computing please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

Imperial Diversity Staff Networks
Staff can feel unsure of who to contact when they have a problem, or they may feel uncomfortable contacting their line manager. If the concern is in relation to an equality, diversity or culture issue, staff can contact the Department of Computing's Equality, Diversity and Culture Committee using this anonymous online contact form.
Members of staff can also seek guidance using Imperial College's Staff Supporters Scheme. A Staff Supporter is an existing member of staff who is part of a trained network of volunteers which provide confidential and positive assistance to all Imperial staff when they need information, guidance and support.
Staff, students and visitors can also report or challenge any negative behaviours, such as bullying, harassment or discrimination via the Faculty of Engineering's Have Your Say Campaign.
If you are not a current member of staff and would like to raise an issue or provide feedback specifically to/about our Department, please use the Feedback Form below. Alternatively you can email email@example.com.
