WIT Networking Event to be held on October 4 during ASHI Meeting
NIH's first Chief Officer for Scientific Workforce Diversity, Dr. Hannah Valantine, will describe NIH's current approach and activities related to promoting inclusive excellence through fostering workforce diversity, and highlight four main diversity challenges facing biomedicine:
1) Advancing scholarship of the science of diversity;
2) Using a data-driven scientific approach to understand diversity drivers and outcomes;
3) Studying and mitigating the role of sociocultural factors in recruitment, retention, and career advancement;
4) Sustaining future workforce diversity.
She will also describe the development and use of the NIH Scientific Workforce Diversity Toolkit: a free, downloadable interactive resource to help advance faculty diversity through evidence-based interrelated activities. A key focus will be the need to advance institutional accountability for lasting change.
