NICHD launched the STrategies to enRich Inclusion and achieVe Equity (STRIVE) initiative in 2021 to improve equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) in all aspects of the institute’s research and workforce.

Led by OHE, STRIVE aims to:

  • Enhance EDI within NICHD’s workforce
  • Foster EDI in the broader scientific workforce and among trainees
  • Understand how to mitigate the root causes of health disparities and develop potential solutions to reduce or address these disparities through research

The goals of this final STRIVE for Change workshop are to summarize lessons learned across the workshop series and review the state of implementation and translation sciences in health disparities research to address challenges in the field for NICHD populations. Researchers, practitioners, scholars, and advocacy organizations will be brought together to discuss how translation and implementation science can be effectively integrated into research aimed at addressing and mitigating drivers of health disparities.

The workshop also will help inform the STRIVE Action Plan for achieving initiative themes. The Action Plan will complement the NICHD Strategic Plan and will guide changes in NICHD’s activities and policies for EDI and health disparities research for the next 5 years.

Individuals who need reasonable accommodations to participate in this activity should contact Liza Cook at at least 5 days in advance.
