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.
