Diversity in engineering & computer science

The College of Engineering and Computer Science established the Diversity and Inclusion Committee in 2018 to support our commitment to creating an inclusive, open and respectful culture.

By diversifying today’s computing and engineering disciplines, we have the potential to critically transform the technology sector with a broader range of knowledge, values and lived experiences.

Our Associate Dean – Diversity and Inclusion, and support staff, are dedicated to developing and rolling out inclusion initiatives.

We encourage all College students and staff to embrace opportunities for involvement with the Diversity and Inclusion Committee. Building and strengthening a diverse community will benefit us all, beginning with individuals who have the courage to grow as cultural leaders.

Take part in upcoming events with GEECS (Gender Equity in Engineering and Computer Science), an inclusive networking space for women and gender diverse people.

Keep an eye on our staff newsletter for updates on more emerging efforts [staff only content].

The Committee aims to support engagement with diversity and inclusion as a core priority within CECS. For any thoughts, collaboration ideas, comments, questions or suggestions, please reach out to community.cecs@anu.edu.au.
