Inspiring young people from diverse backgrounds into STEM & enabling companies to explore ways to be inclusive of their diverse colleagues.

About this event

People from global ethnic majorities (GEM) are under-represented in STEM fields. With technology increasingly touching most aspects of our lives, it’s of the utmost importance that there is diversity in engineering to ensure that it serves everyone in our society.

RS Grass Roots is the dedicated Education brand of RS Components. Their annual flagship event, REflect, founded in 2019, is back this year in collaboration with the Association For Black & Minority Ethnic Engineers (AFBE) and The Institution of Engineering & Technology (IET).

The event aims to inspire young people from diverse ethnic backgrounds into STEM and enables companies to explore ways to be truly inclusive of their ethnically diverse colleagues.

We are also introducing a National Day to celebrate and recognise the achievements and contributions of #GEMinSTEM.
