Goal 2: Support a biomedical and health research culture that promotes and values equity, diversity and inclusion

We will support a biomedical and health research culture that promotes and values equity, diversity and inclusion by:

  • Embedding EDI within our events, policy advice, grant awards and programmes ensuring they are accessible and available to all.
  • Using our status, influence and convening power to host discussions, make recommendations and aid actions to create, a more inclusive and accessible medical science sector for everyone.
  • Seeking collaborations with small and emerging networks, created by and for marginalised groups, to support and amplify their work.

Our overall success measure for this EDI strategy is the impact we have in creating a more open and progressive UK research sector that is improving the health of everyone, everywhere.

Under this EDI strategy, our success measures of supporting a biomedical and health research culture that promotes and values equity, diversity and inclusion by 2026 are:

  • A positive reputation for inclusive and accessible events, grants and programmes.
  • A reputation for being open and progressive in how we are leading the way towards an inclusive medical science sector for everyone.
  • Longstanding relationships with grassroot networks creating ongoing opportunities for collaboration.
