Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
Our Commitment to Diversity
We believe that the rapid advancement of knowledge, insights and approaches through research can only be achieved through the commitment, excellence and dedication of a diverse group of researchers from many backgrounds. As a result of centuries of structural racism, sexism, discrimination, as well as underlying biases in the scientific community in the treatment of individuals from underrepresented groups, scientific progress has been hindered. We know that integrating diverse viewpoints and scientific ideas and perspectives enrich our research community and enhances our ability to attract and retain the world’s best researchers and staff, as well as create a productive work environment where we can all thrive. We therefore commit to creating and fostering an inclusive work environment that will support training, career development, pay equality and equitable workspace regardless of color, ethnicity, gender, religion, country of origin, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity/expression, family responsibility, matriculation, political affiliation, genetic information, veteran status, or any other legally protected status.
