Women in Computer Science student group
The Women in Computer Science Leicester group promotes Computer Science and supports female students with an interest in this subject. This is not restricted to the students of the Department of Informatics and we welcome other female students from different departments to join us.
This is an informal student-led group run by volunteer Student Ambassadors.
The group meets every month in term time and invites all women with an interest in Computer Science to join us or coffee/tea, biscuits and chat.
We talk about networking events and career opportunities, geared towards women such as "IT's not just for boys", "WomENcourage" conference, "Grace Hopper" Conference, "BCS Colloquium" and etc.
We are also working to set up free coding classes for females at our university campus through the Code First: Girls organisation. See general information about the free coding classes run by the Code First: Girls organisation.
