Welcome to Hoppers!

Edinburgh Hoppers is the official society for women, non-binary and transgender people in the School of Informatics of the University of Edinburgh.

What we do

As the official society for Gender Minorities in Informatics at the University of Edinburgh, our goal is to cultivate an open community with the aim to provide a supportive and inclusive society where people are comfortable and can build both technical and networking skills to thrive in the tech environment.

We differ from other socities at the University of Edinburgh in that every woman, transgender and non-binary person studying or working at the School of Informatics is automatically a member of Hoppers, so there is no need to become a member or to pay a subscription fee!

Our events

We organize events where we cooperate with large and small companies to provide our members with the best opportunities and contacts to build a career. Our focus is to empower all women, non-binary and transgender people in technology.

Our team

Our committee is comprised of a diverse group of students from the School of Informatics, as well as students in joint degrees with the Schools of Mathematics, Engineering or Business. We are always looking for passionate people with any kind of skills to join our team and help grow our community.
