Providing support across science, technology, engineering and maths for disabled workers, current and aspiring disabled students and their teachers
STEMM-DAC seeks new Independent Chair
The Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Medicine Disability Advisory Committee (STEMM-DAC) is looking for an experienced, independent Chair to lead us into a new phase of our work, with a new focus on influencing policy development on STEMM disability issues.
STEMM-DAC (formerly STEM Disability Committee) brings together the main academies, learned societies and professional bodies in science, engineering and medicine to speak with a clear authoritative voice on the inclusion of disabled people in STEMM education and employment. Our partnership aims to bring collective action and a strategic approach to strengthening the inclusion of disabled people in STEMM and believes that by working collaboratively and having a common purpose, we can maximise impact.
The Chair of the STEMM Disability Advisory Committee will play a vital role in the leadership and stewardship of our work to influence policy and provision for disabled people studying and working in STEMM. They will help shape the future direction of the work that the Committee undertakes and be an ambassador for disabled people studying and working in STEMM careers.
The STEM Disability Committee is a cross-STEM collaborative group concerned with improving access to science, technology, engineering and maths subjects in education and careers.
We are keen to highlight and share the stories of those who love studying or working in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) and also have a disability. If that is you, we would be delighted if you would consider writing a short piece (around 400 words) for our website to share your STEM story.
In particular, in your piece it would be interesting to hear:
If you are happy to do so, please send your name and a photograph along with your written piece to email@example.com
