The RSS now has a Diversity and Inclusion policy that summarises the key principles and methods the Society will use to ensure that we are an inclusive organisation. All areas of RSS activity share responsibility in the implementation of the policy.
The policy was proposed to Council in March 2019 by the RSS Diversity and Inclusion Working Group, which regularly reviews progress and provides links to related activities such as the LMS Women in Mathematics Committee and the the RSS Special Interest Group on Women in Statistics and Data Science. The policy was approved by Council, which appointed Sara Hilditch CStat as RSS Diversity Champion to act as a point of contact for Council in its implementation. There is also a meeting conduct policy which applies to all RSS conferences events.
