The PCTG are committed to maintaining a balanced membership and promote equal opportunity events in line with the wider RSC Inclusion & Diversity goals.
The Process Chemistry and Technology Group (PCTG) takes a wide view of diversity, covering aspects such as nationality, country of residence, and field of employment (industry, academia and public sector), as well as traditional aspects such as gender, age, disability, status and sexual orientation.
The Committee will develop activities and resources in an inclusive manner, aiming to make all activities accessible to all members of the Group. Specifically:
The Committee will strive for diversity in its core membership.
We will set targets to reflect gender diversity when inviting speakers for events, and aim for diversity in other aspects such as country of residence.
We will source and propagate information that address gender-specific issues, such as health and safety issues affecting pregnant and breastfeeding mothers.
We will design online resources, and select meeting venues, with accessibility in mind.
We will be mindful of the needs of non-native English speakers.
We will be sensitive to the needs of international group members when selecting places, dates and times for meetings and live online activities.
The RSC Inclusion and Diversity Fund offers grants of up to £5000 for innovative products, activities and research projects that promote inclusion and diversity in the chemical science community. Apply here.
The PCTG feel strongly about supporting New & Expectant Mothers whether working in academia or industry. To this end we have started collating information in this area to provide individuals considering starting a family easy to access existing resources.
