I’m Clio Heslop, the Head of Policy, Partnerships, and Impact.

I lead a small team working to influence organisations from policy, business, civil society, media, research, and engagement sectors. I’m interested in making science institutions and spaces more inclusive to all, and in involving people in decision-making about science.

I manage the BSA’s role in the Sciencewise consortium, I oversee events and activities for For Thought, plus I support my colleagues to run the Secretariat for the All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Diversity and Inclusion in STEM, and our Future Forum programme.

I have also been heavily involved in thinking through how to make the BSA more inclusive, through our Sustaining Excellence grant and Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) action plan. I’m always keen to hear from other people working on EDI, so get in touch if you have questions, suggestions, or resources to share. (She/her/hers)

I’m Giorgio D'Agostaro, Development Manager.

My role involves forming and managing partnerships with external organisations which align to the BSA’s vision and mission, and ultimately help us work towards achieving them. Over the past 5 years, I have worked on delivering successful corporate partnerships for British Science Week, the British Science Festival, the CREST Awards, For Thought and our Future Forum series.

If you would like to support the BSA’s work across one or more of our programmes, please do get in touch.
