The vision of EuroScience is a scientific workforce that creates a positive change for society. However, we believe that this vision can only be realised if the professional workforce is as diverse and representative of the society it should serve. We recognise that there are many obstacles to achieving this diversity, including organisational cultures (the values and behaviours that contribute to the unique social and psychological environment of an organisation) in the workplace that are not inclusive, supportive or designed to nurture and celebrate diverse voices and talent.
EuroScience will soon begin a set of activities that focus on highlighting both good and bad organisational practices and culture within our broad community. To better understand our future areas of focus, we undertook a short anonymous consultation that closed at the end of February 2021.
If you would like more information on how to be involved in this initiative, please send a separate email to inclusion[at]euroscience.org.
Analysis of the first part of consultation are in process and will be published beginning of April 2021.
