Equality, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EEDI)
Diversity and Equality Policy Statement
The BSPP celebrates and values the diversity of its membership and believes that equality and equity of opportunity is key in achieving our aims. We are committed to the positive promotion of equality, equity, diversity and inclusion amongst our members. The society aims to foster an environment which is fair, welcoming and inclusive and where everyone is treated with dignity and respect.
The BSPP EEDI sub-committee reports to the BSPP board and reviews equality, equity, diversity and inclusivity in the Society’s activities, and works to support and develop the society’s policies and initiatives. Members of the EEDI sub-committee also regularly attend the Royal Society of Biology (RSB) Member Organisations’ Diversity and Inclusivity Working Group.
Carer Support Grants:
A carer support grant is available in conjunction with our travel award applications. The intention of these grants is to widen participation at BSPP and other relevant conferences to those who may find costs incurred by their caring responsibilities can prohibit conference attendance. Please see our Travel Funds for further details.
