MBIE pushing for greater diversity in science

On: 7 September 2018

The Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment has developed a new diversity statement for New Zealand’s science system to support a vibrant and successful science and research base reflecting the diversity of New Zealand.

The Diversity in Science Statement is a commitment to ensuring science funding applicants, award recipients, and assessment and decision making bodies reflect New Zealand’s increasingly diverse population.

Through the statement, MBIE aims to raise awareness of unconscious bias, report on the diversity of applicants, awards holders and decision making bodies, and review funding policies to better understand their impact on inclusion and diversity.
