We believe diversity, equity, and inclusion are essential for advancing science.
The art of science lies in asking the right questions and seeking logical, evidence-based answers. The more backgrounds, perspectives, and experiences brought to bear, the higher the likelihood for robust solutions and breakthroughs.
We believe that understanding stories of intersectionality is powerful.
Without an intersectional lens, our efforts to tackle inequalities towards women are likely to just end up perpetuating other inequitable systems and practices.
We believe biases permeate everything we do.
It is important to recognize that we are never wholly outside of the social, cultural, political, and economic structures in which we were raised and our impressions formed.
We believe effective best practices exist.
Although women and marginalized genders face an uphill battle in equity and inclusion, there are many best practices that can improve the status quo.
We believe strong connections and networks are essential for career growth.
Scientists with more opportunities to participate in and create strong networks are better equipped to conduct research and shape rewarding careers.
