Promoting a diverse and robust scientific workforce is critical to advancing scientific discovery and research in support of human health, so NIH has developed a new portal to information on supporting diversity in NIH-funded research. This NIH website has four main areas of focus:
- Background on NIH initiatives in support of scientific workforce diversity
- Resources for scientific leadership & faculty members to use to further diversity in their programs
- Resources for investigators and trainees to develop their careers, find training and mentorship, and learn about others’ careers through personal stories and video interviews
- Reports and data on diversity in the NIH-supported workforce, and in the broader research workforce
Additionally, the site provides direct links to NIH institute and center-specific programs related to supporting diversity in particular research areas. NIH welcomes your feedback on the site, and we encourage you to share this resource with your colleagues.
