The Department of Electronic Engineering aims to provide a working environment which allows all staff and students to excel, flourish and contribute fully.
We recognise the importance of the participation from all parts of society, and wish to encourage greater involvement from the traditionally underrepresented groups in the field of Electronic Engineering, including women and members of the BAME and LGBTQ+ communities.
The department's Equality and Diversity Committee was established in October 2013 to monitor the department's policies and seek to improve the representation and experiences of all of its staff and students. As a department, we strive for equality and diversity across all agreed protected characteristics to build a collegiate, supportive working environment so that everyone who works or studies here can thrive.
The department is proud of its Athena SWAN Bronze Award for our work in encouraging and supporting female participation in Electronic Engineering and is committed to the Athena SWAN Charter.
If you have any questions about our work in this area, I would be delighted to hear from you firstname.lastname@example.org
