I am passionate about getting more girls into computing sectors and supporting women in IT.
Over the years ...
I have collaborated with Carron Shankland (LEAD, Stirling University) and others on an EPSRC bid to set up a National Network to encourage more females into and in Computer Science (this collaboration is ongoing).
I was involved in the the Athena Swan Bronze award application for the Department of Computer Science and Creative Technologies at the University of west of England (UWE)(2018)
I was widening participation representative for the School of Computer Science and Creative Technologies at the University of West of England (UWE)(2018). In June 2018, I worked with 160 local Bristol schools girls (14-15 years old) to highlight the values and joy of studying Computer Science.
I co-led (until my departure) the Athena Swan Bronze award application (submitted in 2018) for the School of Computing and Maths at the University of South Wales (USW)
I participated in the USW Women in Leadership development program (September 2016 to June 2017).
Under the WUMS (Women in University Mentoring Scheme), I mentored staff members from Bangor University (2015-2016) and USW (2016-2017).
I set up and led the ‘Women in Computing’ group in the School of Computing and Maths at USW (2015)
