Make sure to join OxWoCS (Oxford Women in CS), a society we're working closely with,
if you identify as a woman or woman-adjacent person in CS! They have a host of wonderful
events on, including talks, panels and socials. Computer Science is unfortunately a
subject with one of the biggest gender gaps in Oxford and worldwide, and addressing this
is at the core of OxWoCS.
