I’m Clio Heslop, 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 Natalia Grzomba, Policy and External Relations Manager. 


I manage the Secretariat for the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Diversity and Inclusion in STEM, which includes leading inquiries and liaising with parliamentary members and external partners.

Together with colleagues in the Policy, Partnerships and Impact Team, I also develop activities and partnerships for the For Thought events and support the BSA’s role in the Sciencewise public dialogue consortium. 

I’m interested in bringing together stakeholders from across science, business, policy, and civil society. Get in touch if you would like to discuss cross-sector partnerships or if you have any questions about the APPG’s work. (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.

I'm Carolyn Bishop, Partnerships and Advocacy Manager.

I lead the Future Forums programme, helping to empower young people to share their views on issues and cutting-edge innovation that will affect their futures. My special interests lie in youth voice work and advocacy with young people (aged between 14 -18).

I also work on other engagement and advocacy projects across the organisation, helping to build and maintain relationships with key stakeholders in science engagement and civil society organisations. I’m passionate about the place of science in society, and am focused on seeking system-wide change to allow greater agency among underrepresented people and communities.

I’m always interested in learning from, and collaborating with, like-minded organisations, so please do get in touch if you’d like to share ideas, ask a question, or explore ways that we can work together.
