Diversity and Inclusion Implementation Steering Group
View the latest information on the Steering Group.
The Science Council has set itself a strategic ambition to work towards a science workforce that reflects the diversity of society. Please read the report below as it provides the key findings of the 2017 Diversity and Inclusion Progression Framework benchmarking exercise for scientific bodies.

The Diversity and Inclusion Progression Framework is a tool for professional bodies to assess and monitor their progress on diversity and inclusion. Developed in collaboration with the Royal Academy of Engineering, this is a key element of the support available for Science Council member organisations, as they seek to embed diversity in their strategies and planning.
All of our member organisations have signed the Declaration on Diversity, Equality and Inclusion, which commits them to promoting diversity and to help the Science Council achieve its strategic aim of a more diverse science workforce. All new member organisations are now expected to sign the declaration as part of their application for membership.
