Diversity Committee

The Diversity Committee oversees the Royal Society’s diversity and inclusion strategy and related activities. The Committee’s work has included developing animations on ‘making better group decisions’ and ‘unconscious bias’, the ‘Parent Carer Scientist campaign’ - which celebrated the work-life patterns of 150 scientists in the UK - and piloting the Destination STEMM mentoring scheme for Year 12 Black students in London. Committee members also participate in the annual diversity conference, and both speak at and attend external meetings and events. In 2019, the Committee will take forward a programmes of work on supporting scientists from ethnic minorities and scientists with disabilities. The Committee was established in 2015.
