Our group is committed to creating an inclusive space for all by welcoming diversity into STEM and academia. We have created new initiatives in an effort to contribute toward positive change in our community. We have integrated a “Diversity Minute” into our monthly group meetings speaking to any experiences, thoughts, or information regarding diversity. Additionally, several of our members are committed to taking an individual approach by participating in community events, spreading awareness, and volunteering. Our group highly values different backgrounds, experiences, and ideas of every individual. Different perspectives are absolutely necessary to nurture innovation and growth, especially within the scientific community.
