BCS and Coding Black Females (CBF) announce inclusion partnership

As a part of BCS commitment to make IT more inclusive and engage with a greater diversity of people, BCS and CBF announced a joint bursary which will see over 70 individual members of CBF provided with BCS membership, as well as a range of mentoring and other career development benefits. Black women make up less than 1% of IT Professionals. BCS data and analysis on their under-representation barriers to progress in the IT industry was highlighted in the Guardian.

BCS partnership with The Voice, the UK’s leading black newspaper, has resulted in a range of BCS experts from ethnic monitoring groups being highlighted, including our Awkward Conversation webinar featuring Prof Dorothy Monekosso, of Leeds Beckett University, Nzube Ufodike, Vice chair of BCS, London Central Branch, and Dr Ip-Shing Fan  Chair of BCS Bedford Branch.
