Women are represented in diminishing proportions as career levels progress and significant numbers of women leave science altogether. Scientists from marginalised groups such as LGBT+, BME and disabled scientists also do not achieve success at the same rates as their counterparts. With partners on the Wellcome Genome Campus we explore these issues, look to inspire researchers, develop discussion and drive change in current practices and policy

Equality in Science Programme Information

Internationally, women are represented in diminishing proportions as career levels progress and significant numbers of women leave science altogether. Commensurate with societal and cultural shifts, the issues that cause this well-recognised leaky pipeline now affect not only female scientists, but increasingly also men in science.

Scientists from marginalised groups such as LGBT+, BME and disabled scientists also do not achieve success at the same rates as their counterparts. In our Equality in Science programme we explore these issues, look to inspire researchers, develop discussion and drive change in current practices and policy.
