Diversity in science
By putting a focus on diversity we can make sure that we capture the very best ideas and talent to support the highest quality research. We believe that everyone should have a fair and equal opportunity to participate in the science system to their fullest potential.
Our Diversity in Science Statement sets out our ambition to promote diversity in science and research.

Our Diversity Data Dashboard allows you to view the diversity data we have collected and gain an oversight into the diversity of applicants that have applied for MBIE science funding since 2019. You can use it to see a picture of the diversity of our funding applications, whether successful or not, by fund, year, and information type.

Diversity is vital for our science system to realise its full potential. A focus on diversity ensures we capture the very best ideas and talent to support the highest quality research.
Te Tauaki a MBIE mō te Matahuhuatanga i te Pūtaiao | Te Reo Māori translation of Diversity in Science statement
He mea tino nui te matahuhuatanga i te pūnaha pūtaiao e puta katoa ai ngā hua e taea ana, e tika ana. Mā te arotahi ki te matahuhuatanga e mau pai ai ngā whakaaro me ngā pūmanawa kairangi hei tautoko i ngā rangahautanga kairangi.
