Attracting talent… We need to actively encourage greater diversity and inclusion. Greater diversity and inclusion means both opening the field to many more talented scientists and also widening our perspective to what talent is. This brings increased creativity, innovation and new ways of thinking, as well as a much bigger field of talent!
Raising the field’s profile…It’s on us to share why measurement matters and how it impacts on lives every day.
Book for scientists?All scientists – actually not just scientists – should read “Latitude” by Dava Sobel. It’s not just a story of great scientific discovery, of adventure and persistence, but it demonstrates the power of science, data and accurate measurement to change the world for the better. All told through a fabulous story.
