Research teams composed of individuals from diverse backgrounds and life experiences have been shown to be more effective in scientific problem solving and driving discovery and innovation. Enhancing diversity in research teams and programs requires creating an inclusive environment where all members of a lab are supported and valued. During this session panelists will discuss the benefit of managing a lab with diverse members, and best practices for cultivating an inclusive, safe, and supportive environment where all trainees and peers can thrive.
