Diversci is a collective of science engagement professionals advocating to push inclusion, equity, diversity and social justice to the top of the strategic agendas of science engagement organisations so that we no longer fail an important part of our audiences and our co-workers. We aim to harvest the collective experiences, efforts and commitment within our network and beyond. Our group is a self-organised, bottom-up initiative that started after the European science centre and science museum conference (Ecsite) in 2016, following a challenging keynote speech by Liz Rasekoala. In 2019 it was awarded a collaborative grant by Ecsite. Since then, it has supported institutions and individuals driving such changes by providing: structured and specific resources, community and capacity building and advocacy.
We do not claim to have all the answers, and we know this work takes a lot of effort and is never complete. We do, however, share a lot of experience and are honest and committed to inspiring individuals and institutions. We invite them, and you, to join this movement for social justice.
