In April, ICE Council adopted a diversity and inclusivity action plan.
Based on the 10 steps identified by Women Into Science & Engineering (WISE), the Action Plan reaffirms the ICE’s commitment to inclusivity and requires the institution to do more to combat unconscious bias. WISE is working to get 1M more women into the UK science, technology engineering and maths workforce. The plan requires all ICE panels, reviewers and registers to conform to the new standard. The ICE has begun training staff and volunteers, and will embed these practices into the ICE business plan and regularly audit progress.
