Chi Onwurah comments on Royal Society’s report on diversity in STEM

Chi Onwurah MP, Labour’s Shadow Science Minister, commenting on the Royal Society’s report on diversity in STEM, said:

“Our future economy must be driven by science, and STEM careers must be open to everyone.

“This Royal Society reports shows that this is far, far from being the case. We need strong action to change this and build an innovation nation, and government must play a proper role in making that happen.

“We cannot just accept there will be a lost generation of people who felt unable to enter the science community.”
