All-Party Parliamentary Group on Diversity & Inclusion in STEMAbout the Group The All-Party Parliamentary Group on Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) 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. For more updates, follow us on Twitter. As part of its work on equality, diversity and inclusion across the science and science engagement sectors, the British Science Association (BSA) acts as secretariat for the Group. The Group is made up of Members of Parliament and Lords, and is a focus for collaboration with businesses and other organisations in STEM. Details of previous meetings of the APPG can be found here. Request for Proposals The APPG is looking for a data consultant or agency to undertake mapping work of STEM skills in the UK. The Request for Proposals closes at 9.00am on Monday 30 May 2022.
