10:15-12:15 Athena SWAN – Professor Carron Shankland, University of Stirling

Computing is lagging behind other disciplines in terms of demonstrating an inclusive working environment. A recent EPSRC report (Understanding the status of under-represented groups in the Information and Communication Technologies) has highlighted the problems, and opened the way to conversations about how we can make our discipline more welcoming of diversity. The answer may lie in more conversations about the issues and solutions. In this workshop we will talk some relevant initiatives to support departments in their EDI activities (including Athena SWAN applications).
