Computer Science wins Zero Tolerance To Sexual Harassment Award

On Wednesday 14 June UCL Computer Science was presented with a Zero Tolerance To Sexual Harassment Award to celebrate the work of its staff and students over the past year in creating a Zero Tolerance environment at UCL.

Computer Science was named as one of thirty departments across UCL to have successfully implemented all elements of the Zero Tolerance Pledge, as part of a campaign run by UCLU.

The Department would like to thank JJ Giwa (photographed receiving the award) for arranging seminars and acting as the first point of contact, while incoming students have been trained to be Active Bystanders, subsequently creating a community that understands exactly what constitutes as consent and knows how to can respond if they witness sexual harassment while at UCL.

Applications for Active Bystander workshops are currently open and will close on 30 June, if you are a staff member from a department you can sign up here for Active Bystander Workshops for the 2017 induction period.
