The Inclusion Group for Equity in Research in STEMM
We are hosting a letter which has been written by some of our members and other colleagues in the higher education sector to protest recent actions by Advance HE that indicate a backsliding away from support of full inclusion of trans colleagues in the Higher Education sector.
We have written to Greg Clark, the new Chair of the Commons Science and Technology committee, urging him to continue the inquiry begun in the last parliament into the impact of science funding policy on equality, diversity, inclusion and accessibility.
We have published "Barriers LGBTQI+ People Face in the Research Funding Processes" as a preprint on OSF.

TIGERS is a group of UK-based STEMM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths and Medicine) professionals & students who are passionate about improving equality, diversity, inclusion & accessibility. We work together on campaigns with broad impact & also support one another in our activism within our own disciplines, demographics or institutions
As a group, we formed early in 2019. This website is still in its infancy, so please bear with us while we find our stripes.
