In March 2023, the House of Commons Science and Technology Select Committee, launched its report on Diversity and Inclusion in STEM, which highlighted the important role government can play in promoting and supporting EDI.

This report comes two years after the UK government published the Research and Development People and Culture strategy, and in the last two years a number of science and technology organisations and funders have reviewed Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) within their own organisations and across UK science and technology. This event will consider the current state of EDI in UK STEM and what more the Government can do in tackling the challenges.

Hosted in collaboration between the British Science Association, the Foundation for Science and Technology and the Science Council, a panel of voices from across the sector will seek to provide some insights into what works and where the Government could usefully help the STEM community. Following the panel will be an opportunity for networking with policymakers, sector leaders and other key stakeholders.
