Diversity & Inclusion in Research 

In 2021 the Young Foundation carried out research for the Social Research Association into experiences of diversity and inclusion among UK social researchers.   More than 900 researchers took part in an extensive survey, followed by a qualitative study to gain deeper understanding.  The report, 'Far to Go: Diversity and Inclusion in Social Research', covers:

Perceptions of workplace culture and inclusion
Experiences of entry to the profession and progression within it
The need for inclusive research and procurement practices
What organisations are doing about diversity and inclusion, and what is making a difference
