We believe that generating transformative and innovative

research is FUNDAMENTALLY linked to inclusive and diverse lab environments.


Therefore, we acknowledge, honor, and pledge ourselves to creating and maintaining an environment that respects diverse traditions, heritages, and experiences.

WE WILL NOT TOLERATE direct or indirect (i.e. micro-aggression) behavior associated, but not limited to, racism, sexism, classism, heterosexism, ageism, and ableism.

WE WILL TAKE ACTION against discriminatory behavior

WE WILL EDUCATE ourselves on inclusive practices via anti-discriminatory training, literature, self-reflection and dialogue.

WE WILL AMPLIFY voices from marginalized communities by using the lab as a platform to promote upward mobility.

WE WILL COMMIT to integrating marginalized groups by diversifying our recruitment, engagement, and science outreach activities.
