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.
