NERC diversity and inclusion action plan 2022-2025

NERC action plan to improve diversity, equity, and inclusion in under-represented groups across the broad range of roles in the environmental science research community.




NERC recognises there are low levels of diversity and inclusion in the environmental sciences.

This plan sets out NERC’s strategic priorities for 2022-2025 and identifies the steps NERC is taking to fund, attract, and retain a talented and diverse team within NERC and across UK environmental science.

NERC has detailed initial actions and associated milestones to support delivery of these priorities alongside indicators to measure success.
