In 2018 the RSB hit its highest ever figures for individual membership, reaching more than 18,000 members. But as well as growing our network and reach, we must make sure we are representative of modern bioscience and responsive to the evolving needs of the sector.
We are working to promote equality, diversity and inclusion in the biosciences and in our activities, ensuring the best minds are working in bioscience and spreading the message that biology is for everyone.
We are also growing our network of Member Organisations to broaden our reach and ensure we represent all areas of bioscience. And we are working on new projects, fundraising ideas and a legacy scheme to ensure that the Society is in as strong a position as possible to help support biology and biologists long into the future.
We aim to:
- Grow as a community of biologists by achieving a total membership of at least 21,000 and ensuring retention rates of 90% or above
- Increase visibility and access to our services by developing a new website by the end of 2020
- Sign up 100 RSB Ambassadors by 2020, strengthening our connection to industrial and academic organisations across the UK
- Recruit new Member Organisations to ensure established and emerging specialism are all represented.
