Ethnic Minorities in Materials, Minerals and Mining (EMM3)

14 Jul 2020

IOM3 is looking to establish a support network for ethnic minorities based on the successful Women in Materials, Minerals and Mining and IOM3Pride model.

The new network will be led by Samuel Grisa IOM3 member and Graduate Materials Engineer from Loughborough University. The long goal of the group is to promote equality of ethnic minorities within the materials, minerals and mining industries. In the short term, the focus will be around gathering data from members belonging to minority groups to understand any issues they may face in the industry or in education and how IOM3 can help address them.

Furthermore, the group will also promote the creation of inclusive policies within the institute, as well as raising awareness in regards to issues such as unconscious biases in the workplace. If you are interested or would like to get involved, contact
