Future-proof technology

Diversity & Ethics

Birds of a feather flock together. Role models and communities are important here – for women interested in coding games, for example.

Now, MIT has launched an initiative aimed at improving gender representation in electrical engineering and information technology.

Both fields play a significant role in the global economy, yet until now men have made up 75% of the doctoral student body.

As well as encouraging women to pursue their studies to PhD level and beyond, the initiative will provide support with the application process and help ensure that research opportunities are more accessible.

It will also offer a long-term mentoring service. Increased female participation will mean a better future for previously underrepresented groups.

Which helps everyone.
