The Times they are 'a Changing, Lesley Cohen
Lesley Cohen, a physics professor at Imperial College London, provides a perspective on the cultural changes supporting gender equality at universities in the United Kingdom.

Professor Lesley Cohen outlines how the UK is undergoing something of a revolution in the area of gender equality in science.

At Imperial College London, in October 2014 the Provost, James Sterling said that “At Imperial, we know that attracting, developing, promoting and retaining the very best scientists is key to Imperial remaining one of the world’s great universities. This is why we are committed to removing barriers and ensuring gender equality at all levels across the College.” The new President, from September 2014, is Alice Gast (formerly LiHigh University, US and MIT) advocated for boosting collaboration, increasing the number of female role models, providing inspiring mentors, recognizing the success and achievements of women scientists and ensuring access to funding.
