  1. 1. Inclusive Initiatives
  2. 2. Inclusive Initiatives• Aim: to generate new ideas for how to engage with under-represented or‘hard to reach’ audiences.• Each table will be allocated a different audience - you can opt for a differentone if you want (although we don’t want too many duplicates). Q. Do wewant to try to do 2 each by rotating topics?• Each table will have a ‘host’ from either BIS, a speaker or someone who hasworked with the particular group.We have 40 minutes for this part of the session

  4. 4. Table topics• Main topics– Low Socio-economic background: Not just students but their influencers. Also think aboutregional variation / multi-generational unemployment / old industrial area– BAME: identifying which BAME communities are underrepresented and how to reach them. Alsothink about the impact of English as an Additional Language (EAL) – again, not just students– Girls: in physics/engineering/technology– Location: people in rural locations or those without significant science infrastructure, e.g.universities, businesses– Digital engagement: Those without digital access, e.g. some older people. Also think about thosewho only engage digitally• Additional topics– B-grade students: expectation / opportunities– The ‘T’ in STEM: those less into science / research but more into technology– Others?
  5. 5. What do we want you to do?• Introduce yourselves and briefly share your experiences with targeting orworking with the specific group – capture on flip chart.• Brainstorm new/different ways of reaching those groups – within a specificcontext using BIS Aims (on wall)– Include how to best ‘go where they are’– Identify any gaps or duplication– Suggest partnerships to help improve reach.• Write ideas on flip charts provided
