The All-Party Parliamentary Group on Diversity and Inclusion in STEM aims to promote the inclusion and progression of people from diverse backgrounds in STEM, and to encourage government, parliamentarians, academics, businesses and other stakeholders to work towards a STEM sector that is representative of the population. We also want to consider and influence changes in policy that will lead to this outcome.

As part of our work on Diversity and Inclusion in STEM, the BSA will act as secretariat for the Group. The Group will be made up of Members of Parliament and Lords, and will be a focus for collaboration with businesses and other organisations in the STEM sector.
