We have joined up with Science and Innovation Network (SIN) to address LGBT+ underrepresentation in STEM.
With over £600,000 in funding from the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), the Royal Society of Chemistry will offer between five and seven grants to pilot research studies, bringing together STEM and the social sciences to actively study attrition and retention of LGBT+ groups in STEM. The grant projects will run up to 18 months, starting from 01 July 2023 to 01 September 2023 and ending in December 2024.
