Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Diversity, equity, and inclusion are vital to academic research, higher education, and scientific discovery. When people with unique perspectives come together, novel ideas and solutions often result.

In the Weichman Lab, we view the diversity that group members bring to the lab as a resource, strength, and benefit. We strive to make our group welcoming, supportive, and inclusive. We are committed to building a community that serves, respects, values, and supports all researchers, regardless of their race, nationality, ethnicity, religious affiliation, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, socioeconomic status, or disability status.

We also recognize that people who have been historically marginalized due to systemic racism and sexism face additional barriers that we aim to lower in our group. We have a responsibility to educate ourselves about the social and cultural factors – and everyday microaggressions – that perpetuate inequity.
