The CBMG department is committed to creating an educational and work environment that is rich in diversity, inclusive, and supportive of all students, faculty, and staff. The department aspires to reflect the diversity of the broader community; to create an environment where all department members are valued for the contributions unique to their abilities, background and position; and to facilitate their individual growth, productivity, and satisfaction.
The CBMG Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) Committee is responsible for assessing the departmental environment for diversity and inclusion, for recommending activities, resources, and policies to enhance diversity and inclusion within the Department, and for promoting equity and awareness in the department, including climate, recruitment, retention, and outreach.
In order to support and recognize efforts around Diversity and Inclusion, the CBMG Diversity Committee is collecting stories, events, programs, and research efforts of our faculty, staff, student organizations, and students around diversity and inclusion.
Over the last year, if you have supported, led, or hosted an event, program, or research that promotes diversity and inclusion within science, our classrooms or community please complete this form so that we can keep a track of all your efforts!
We would love to share this with the CBMG community and get feedback on areas we can improve!
