The Biochemical Society exists to promote biochemistry and the molecular biosciences, and to represent the interests of all those working within the sector. The Society recognizes that the discipline of 'biochemistry' encompasses the entire breadth of cellular and molecular life sciences and this is reflected in the range of our activities. One of our priorities is actively addressing the issues surrounding fostering diversity in science, through increasing awareness of this subject and promoting systems through which the surrounding issues can be effectively addressed. The Biochemical Society believes that the scientific workforce should reflect the make-up of UK society and thus include fair representation from groups which have been traditionally disadvantaged. Individuals from lower socio-economic backgrounds, certain ethnic minorities, women, and people with disabilities are all currently under-represented in education, training and employment related to science.
