We are committed to creating and maintaining a diverse and positive lab climate. We recognize that there are specific communities who have a history of being overlooked and marginalized. Accordingly, we will listen to, learn from, and raise up all voices in the lab. We firmly believe that a diverse team is a strong team, and that science benefits from a wide array of skill-sets, ideas and experiences.
As such, we are committed to:
- Training, supporting and advocating for all students and lab members, regardless of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, age, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression
- Giving every member a seat at the table
- Making sure all voices are heard and respected
- Ensuring that every lab member receives mentorship, resources and training as befits their needs
