Applications sought for student representatives on BASES Equality, Diversity & Inclusion committee

21st July 2020

By promoting equality, diversity and inclusion, BASES will create greater opportunity for any individual to fulfil their science- and practice-based potential, irrespective of their background or circumstances. In so doing it will also help to better serve society by attracting the widest possible talent to the sport and exercise science workforce and fostering a greater diversity of scientific ideas, research, practice and technology. 

BASES is committed to widening participation in science education, practice, and the workplace. The Board of BASES recently established a new Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Committee and appointed a Board Diversity Champion. 

We are actively seeking interest from BASES student members to apply to become student reps on the Committee.
