Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

The Department embraces and celebrates the differences between people, recognising the strengths and benefits of a diverse, inclusive society, workforce and student body. In the spirit of our founder George Birkbeck, we believe that education should be available to all sections of society, providing an inclusive working and learning environment for students and staff, so that all may develop to their full potential.

We are committed to promoting equality and diversity in all aspects of our activities, through the development of fair and equitable procedures, academic programmes of study, courses, training and development programmes, which are consistently applied and regularly monitored. We encourage and promote an inclusive approach that treats colleagues, students and other service users with respect.

Computing Women @ BBK brings together staff working in the department and students studying on our courses with the aim of promoting and supporting women’s careers in Computer Science and IT.

We also work to ensure that we fully support national schemes, including Athena SWAN, Disability Confident, Mindful Employer, Stonewall Diversity Champions programme and the WISE Campaign.
