ED&I is of upmost importance to ICAM, with a steering group that meets twice a year to share best practice, lessons learnt across all institutions and present at the Annual Conference. ICAM’s key objective in this area is to support an ethos of continuous improvement in ED&I.
Kathleen Lonsdale Research Fellowship
An established flagship ED&I initiative within ICAM is the Kathleen Lonsdale Research Fellowship, launched in 2018. This fellowship fully supports outstanding academic researchers at the beginning of their independent research career, whose personal circumstances require a flexible working pattern or additional support.

The fund is available to offer extra support to all members of ICAM on matters regarding wellbeing, equality and diversity.
