Equity, diversity and inclusion Strategy 2023-2026

In the next three years we will achieve our mission of becoming a trusted voice in EDI by applying the principles outlined below to the following four goals:

  1. Diversify our Fellowship
  2. Support a biomedical and health research culture that promotes and values equity, diversity and inclusion
  3. Review and diversify governance process across the organisation
  4. Grow the diversity of our staff


We have identified the following as the three key elements of the 10-year strategy for this EDI strategy to underpin:

  1. Strategic priority - Fostering a research community that is trusted, open, diverse, collaborative and inclusive.
  2. 2032 commitment - Evolved our Fellowship to be diverse, relevant and energetic in meeting the needs of the biomedical and health profession and the society it represents.
  3. Success measure - An Academy Fellowship and alumni network that is more reflective of the society we live in and that includes a broader diversity of thought, expertise, and backgrounds.


Our EDI Principles

For this EDI strategy we have defined principles and behaviours rooted in the Academy’s values to guide our work, partnerships and collaborations.
