But more is needed to create radical change...
Even though we’re making transformative progress, the gender gap is still significant. The lack of women and other underrepresented groups in IT means a lack of potential, expertise and talent, hindering the progress of our sector – and the world. To deliver the same opportunities to all, we’re continually improving our curricula, enhancing our programs, pioneering research, introducing new initiatives and backing leaders who share our vision.
Putting our plans into action
Proof of our commitment to equity, diversity and inclusion, we have several measures in place to ensure our plans are always backed by action.
This includes establishing the Associate Dean (Equity, Diversity and Inclusion) role. Held by Associate Professor Yolande Strengers, this is a unique leadership position that focuses on creating and advancing our important initiatives in this area.
