Women in Computing

Overview

Goldsmiths' Women in Computing afternoon was held as part of Welcome Week and was fabulously well attended by new and continuing students from across the college. It began with two talks in the Ben Pimlott Lecture Theatre. The first was by Rain Ashford, a PhD student at Goldsmiths working in the field of wearable technology. The title of Rain's talk was 'Women Pioneers in Computing'. This was followed by another talk by Dr Kate Devlin, Senior Tutor in the Dept of Computing who gave a talk which drew on her own experiences as a woman in the field of computing to illustrate the current gender imbalance in STEM subjects, and discuss how this might be challenged. After the talks, attendees participated in a choice of two workshops: An Introduction to Wearable Tech or How to Build a Contact Microphone.
