NIH…Committed to Diversity & Inclusion
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) understands that equity, diversity, and inclusion are critical, scientific imperatives that allow NIH to achieve its goal of turning discovery into health. Accordingly, NIH is deeply committed to advancing diversity and inclusion, and ensuring that the experiences and contributions of all members of our community are valued while also protecting and honoring their civil rights.
Throughout the years, the Office of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion has worked diligently with critical stakeholders to advance NIH’s equity, diversity, and inclusion efforts. A variety of offices, working groups, committees, and affinity groups were established to foster a work environment where equal employment opportunity is a reality, and diversity and inclusion is woven into the fabric of our Agency. It is when the experiences of all people are valued, their unique perspectives are understood, and they are encouraged to be creative and innovative, that our discoveries in biomedical research advance the health of our Nation.
