STEM Disability Committee
STEM-DC was established in 2011. It exists within the wider picture of diversity in STEM but has specific focus on all aspects of disability. Its area of interest spans the whole STEM pipeline, including those aspiring to a STEM career as well as those already employed in a STEM role.

Core members are those organisations in the STEM community who have made a clear commitment to increasing disability access for people studying or working in STEM:

Campaign for Science and Engineering, Institute of Physics, Royal Academy of Engineering, Royal Society, Royal Society of Chemistry and Society of Biology.
