The All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Diversity and Inclusion in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) was established in 2018 and aims to promote the inclusion and progression of marginalised people in STEM, and to encourage government, parliamentarians, academics, businesses and other stakeholders to work towards a STEM sector that is representative of the UK population.
The pandemic has cemented the importance of this workforce and their skills in UK and global society, but it has
also preyed on existing inequities and begun a trend to reverse the progress made over recent years. Without fully
addressing the issues of representation and equity in STEM, we fail this sector and its workers who are so vital to
society and critical to our economy.
