Statement of Intent on Diversity and Inclusion

The BASR is an academic association founded on a commitment to inclusion of ‘all scholars normally resident in the United Kingdom … who are interested in furthering the work of the Association’ (Constitution 2 and 3. i. emphasis added). Our continuing development of this commitment centres upon a recognition of, and respect for, diversity in all its forms.  The BASR is actively foregrounding issues of diversity in our keynote invitations and extending bursary opportunities focused on diversity of inclusion, both with immediate effect. Direct consultation with all BASR members will be undertaken in the Spring of 2022 to formalise a public-facing policy and swiftly implemented action plan to extend inclusion activities and support mechanisms for all members and potential members. The BASR will take into consideration, at all times, the guidance of the 2010 UK Equality Act.
