  • Inspiring young people in STEM


    One of Grass Roots’ annual flagship events is Reflect. This is delivered in partnership with the Association for Black and Minority Ethnic Engineers and the Institution of Engineering and Technology.

    The event focuses on inspiring young people from global ethnic majorities (GEM) backgrounds into Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM). It helps companies explore ways to be truly inclusive of their ethnically diverse colleagues.

    On 1 August 2022, we held our REflect event, in tandem with the #GEMinSTEM National Day, in London. Around 200 people attended the event with others attending virtually where they discussed topics such as heritage and how to encourage those from diverse backgrounds into STEM careers.
