Happy International Women’s Day 2023

Happy International Women’s Day 2023! We invited women in KMi to be featured in this update of our annual commemorative poster.  

KMi are proud to #EmbraceEquity throughout the year.  We are one of a handful of computer science units with Athena Swan silver awards. This award, received in 2022, recognises the positive impacts of our actions over the past five years to tackle gender iniquity head on, and motivates us to continue our journey. Some of the many highlights of KMi’s gender equality work in the past five years have included:

  • An increased percentage of women among our students, our academic staff and our professional and support staff
  • Gender balance in our Promotions, our recruitment of PhD students, and our allocation of leadership roles within KMi

KMi’s engagement with the Athena Swan charter has been an important opportunity for us to reflect on our practices and strengthen our commitment to equal opportunities for all, and to establish a shared vision aligned to the Athena Swan charter and embedded into our practices and procedures.
