Diversity and Inclusion in the Workplace
Diversity and inclusion have become increasingly important to companies and universities looking to stay competitive and recruit more quality talent. Research has shown that more diverse teams do higher-quality, more widely cited scientific research. Supporting diverse teams once they have been built may require changes to workplace culture in order to create a truly inclusive environment. The Diversity and Inclusion in the Workplace panel focused on the successes, opportunities, and challenges of building and maintaining diverse teams. Panelists will discuss individual and institutional approaches to creating inclusive spaces and celebrating diversity in research.
