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.

The Diversity in Science Statement sets out our ambition to promote diversity in science and research. This diversity statement is our first step towards raising awareness of the importance of diversity in science and signals our commitment to do more in this space. The next step will be to start collecting data which will inform a pathway to equity in the science system.
