Cardiff Fellowship awarded to Wendy Hall
Professor Wendy Hall, Head of the School of Electronics and Computer Science, received an honorary fellowship from Cardiff University at their graduation ceremony on 13 July. The fellowship to Professor Hall recognized her distinction in computer science, and her presidency this year of the British Computer Society. In her graduation address Professor Hall highlighted the imbalance between the high proportion of women graduating in the life sciences, and the much smaller number graduating in engineering and computer science. Emphasizing that future developments in advanced knowledge technologies and biologically-inspired computing would require the skills and expertise that women could contribute, she urged all the graduates, but especially the women in the audience, to be assertive, bold, and confident in pursuing their future careers.
