Path to Enhancing Scientific Workforce Diversity (SWD)

May 18, 2022 (Noon to 5 p.m. ET)


Office of Health Equity (OHE), Office of the Director, NICHD


Virtual; registration required


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

The SWD Committee within STRIVE has led a series of activities to understand ways to foster DEIA within NICHD’s extramural workforce and training programs. This workshop continues the SWD committee’s efforts by highlighting innovative systems-level models and strategies to develop and sustain a scientific workforce that embodies DEIA. Participants will also discuss how these models and strategies can further inform efforts to increase DEIA in NICHD’s research populations. The discussion will consider individual, institutional, and programmatic factors that influence NICHD’s capacity for developing, sustaining, and enhancing a scientific ecosystem built around DEIA.

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