Racism is present in science and technology in the UK, as it is across many areas of society. In this event, we discussed black scientists and researchers, and explored a number of questions. What is the nature and scale of the problem? What is the lived experience of black scientists in the UK? What actions are already being taken to address the issues? What more needs to be done?
