Newcastle University is strongly committed to attract women to computer science and other STEM subjects. Computing impacts the quality of our lives more than ever. It’s instrumental in many professional activities as well as our leisure activities, and it impacts health care, local activism, entrepreneurship and so on. To exploit all these opportunities to the fullest, we want to attract women from all ages to study computer science and pursue computing careers.
— Aad van Moorsel, Head of School of Computing Science at Newcastle University.

I’m in my final year at Newcastle University and attended the Campus launch yesterday evening. I just wanted to let you know what an inspirational and fantastic evening I had and what a brilliant organisation I think Girl Geeks is. I am currently a STEM ambassador but I would love to have any sort of involvement with Girl Geeks and would like to say good luck for the future.
As of 1st June I will be a software developer associate at Accenture! So excited to actually have a proper job!
— Zoe Potter, Computer Forensics student at Newcastle College 2012 - 2015, Girl Geeks Campus member

I am delighted that Northumbria University is part of the Girl Geeks initiative to support our female students and encourage more women to pursue careers in technology, science and engineering. These areas will be core to the future economy, culture and wellbeing of our society and it is important we encourage a good gender balance to enter these professions. Girl Geeks is part of the university’s wider commitment to be a beacon for STEM engagement working with partners to inspire the next generation of technologists, engineers, scientists, and mathematicians.
