International Women's Day

News, Mar 08 2023

In recognition of International Women’s Day on 8 March, we're pleased to bring together relevant content from our publications and highlight available resources.

As an organisation we are committed to placing equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) activities at the heart of all that we do, with this a core commitment in our 2022-25 strategy. We recognise the key roles that women play across biochemistry and wider STEM fields, and the disparities that remain for many in terms of their careers and opportunities. 

Dr Amanda Marie James, Chair of the Society’s EDI Advisory Panel, says:

“As an organisation, our strategic commitment to deliberately place our mission and goals within EDI underlines our efforts to create an open and inclusive space for all. Highlighted by this year’s International Women’s Day, we welcome the opportunity to focus on issues that affect gender equity in science”.
