Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

One of the Microbiology Society’s core values is that we are welcoming to anyone interested in microbes, their effects, and their uses. As part of this, we understand and support the need to address diversity and inclusion for the benefit of the discipline and the Society. Greater diversity within all that we do will widen the talent pool available for the field of microbiology and create networks of ideas and collaborations, potentially leading to greater development and innovation. Working to be inclusive helps us to ensure we have a thriving community. By facilitating an environment of equality and diversity we will foster a sense of inclusivity which will in turn pave the way for us to build the capabilities to support microbiology in the future.
