Are you looking to get more engaged with the SEB? Want to gain valuable experience in outreach, education or diversity initiatives? Have ideas on how to improve the SEB's offering in these areas? Then join one of our three focus groups to promote wider discussions on how we can support/enhance:


1. Outreach
2. Education
3. Diversity

Who can join?

We invite any SEB member who is interested in taking a more active role. The outreach group has a focus on public engagement with experimental biology and encouraging the next generation of scientists, the education group has a focus on innovative and inclusive bioscience education and pedagogical methods and the diversity group aims to promote an inclusive environment at the SEB and improving diversity in science and academia more widely.

What do I have to do?

Your initial commitment will be to attend four one-hour online discussions per year to input your own ideas on our existing OED activities and resources for members (and non-members) and how we could increase our impact. Any focus group members who want to be more actively involved will have the opportunity to co-organise/host activities and/or co-create resources.

What next?

If you are interested in joining one (or more) of these focus groups or would like to know more please fill the form below letting us know why you want to be involved.

If you would like to have an informal discussion about this, please contact Sheila Amici-Dargan [email protected] or Rebecca Ellerington [email protected]
