Pride 2018

The NIH is pleased to celebrate June as Pride Month as we remain deeply committed to the principles of equity, diversity, and inclusion in our research and our workplace.

Ally

An ally is a member of an advantaged social group who uses social power to take a stand against injustice directed at oppressed groups (e.g., Whites who speak out against racism, men who are anti-sexist). An ally works to be an agent of social change rather than an agent of oppression.

A Call for 2019 Nominations

Sexual and Gender Minority Community & Ally Leader Award

We are seeking award recipient nominations for individuals who help to advance SGM research or help to make NIH a more welcoming environment for individuals in SGM communities. This award is open to all NIH employees, fellows, and contractors. We want to honor those who encourage others by their example, who demonstrate unconditional compassion and understanding towards this community, and who bring more of themselves into the workplace to make it more inclusive for the specific, named groups that are encompassed under the SGM umbrella.
