We are committed to equality of opportunity for everyone, we value diversity and foster a positive and inclusive environment. We are very proud of our diverse group, institute, and University and we believe that everyone together, irrespective of their gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, nationality, belief or physical ability can contribute to the fight against cancer.
Women in STEM
We are committed to the best quality of scientific research and to facilitate the translation of scientific knowledge into improvements in healthcare. To improve people’s lives, we need the brightest minds and the most skilled individuals to team up and work together. This is why we see no distinction of nationality, gender, ethnicity or faith, we simply look for skills. However, we recognize that in certain disciplines and at certain career stages, women are significantly less represented.
We are campaigning on social media and at events, to inspire younger generations of female scientists and to remove gender-related barriers in science. Feel free to reuse and modify our Word Search Puzzle about Women in STEM that we distribute at outreach events.
Equality, Diversity and Inclusion in STEM
Often we focus our campaigns on equality of opportunity for women in STEM. However, we support equality of opportunity for everyone. Therefore, during the 2019 Cambridge Science Festival, we started a more general campaign about equality, diversity and inclusion in STEM. Also, in this case, we have produced a Word Search Puzzle leaflet that you are free to reuse and modify.
We have tried to include a list of people of different genders, ethnicities, sexual orientations and disabilities, but suggestions are welcome for future editions.
Our message is that there is not much in common among these inspirational people, no colour, no gender, no physical ability. Hard-working and smart, nothing else defines a scientist. A scientist is someone like you.
The drawing on the cover shows a diverse group of superheroes, with the message “Our superpower is you” meaning that the main resource os science is one: people.
Khushali Patel drew the beautiful pictures for the leaflets. Suzan Ber worked on the production of the leaflets.
