A free Policy Lates event discussing ways to best support an inclusive and accessible environment, across the biosciences.


Hear from innovators who are developing ways to improve access and support for people from diverse backgrounds to study and work in the biosciences. Learn about the benefits they've created for people from a range of backgrounds, communities and experiences. Understand the challenges they've faced and how they've overcome them.

Discuss the still outstanding opportunities for broadening access and deepening support so people can thrive, and give back to society, through a career in the biosciences.
