Microbiology Society response to UKRI’s draft EDI strategy consultation
27 April 2022
In our response, we highlight that while the strategy shows UKRI’s commitment towards embedding EDI in its organisation, the strategy does not set out a truly revolutionary vision to make the sector more equitable overall. Quotes and a case study are included to illustrate the unacceptable challenges that some researchers currently face when applying for UKRI funding. We hope that these examples will keep encouraging the organisation to not only develop an ambitious EDI strategy, but, more importantly, to ensure that significant and permanent changes occur in the very fabric of UKRI.
