As a lab we are committed to creating a diverse work environment and in supporting diversity and inclusion in STEM. We believe that our differences make us unique, each of us bringing a valuable perspective. These perspectives should be shared and celebrated.
We acknowledge that diversity and inclusion in science have a long way to go and we are not there yet. As a lab, we support diversity in science by requiring an individual commitment to diversity from all our lab members, discuss issues of diversity on a regular basis and identify diverse role models in science. In addition, we support diversity and inclusion efforts at the levels of institutes, departments, graduate programs, our university campus and our wider community.
