Equality and diversity

NERC is committed to equality and diversity as an employer, as a decision maker and as a funder. This is because we believe that equality and diversity should be embedded within our core business. The research councils have worked together to develop an ambitious Equality & Diversity Action Plan and NERC has developed its own action plan to reflect NERC's own commitment.

NERC's E&D Action Plan explains our vision and the actions we plan to take in order to create the conditions which will attract and retain the best possible researchers, employees and decision makers to deliver NERC's vision of placing environmental science at the heart of responsible management of our planet.
