The BMSS EDI Subcommitee

The BMSS EDI subcommittee, formed in September 2019, has a remit to systematically understand and calibrate the current practice of equality, diversity and inclusion within our Society. The EDI Subcommittee will develop robust metrics for the assessment of equality, diversity and inclusion across the Society’s spectrum of activities. The EDI subcommittee will take the lead in developing targeted actions to address any areas of concern identified from its ongoing internal auditing processes.

Subcommittee Chair

We would also like to promote diverse representation on the EDI subcommittee and the BMSS committee. We are keen to encourage members with diverse perspectives to join us and engage with us. We would also like to improve diversity through engagement with our members; we are particularly keen to hear from participants from BAME backgrounds, Early Career Researchers including students and indeed anyone who can offer ideas on positive changes we can make to improve our practices. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you would like to be more involved with shaping the future of the BMSS as an inclusive environment for all people.


If you have ideas for events that you feel the EDI subcommittee could help organise or promote or would like to join the EDI subcommittee and get involved with our activities,  please get in touch with:
