Bioethics Interest Group (BIG) Webinar Series on Ethics and Public Health

Join us as we discuss Diversity in Research Training in our webinar series hosted by the Office of Research Excellence (ORE) this month.

Diversity in research training is imperative to fostering innovation, growth, and progress in unlocking the transformative potential of research within the scientific community. Additionally, it promotes equity and inclusivity, ensuring that underrepresented individuals have equal access to educational opportunities, mentorship, and resources.

By embracing and encouraging diversity in all its forms, including race, gender, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, and cultural background, research training programs can benefit from a rich array of perspectives, experiences, and ideas, thus enabling researchers to tackle complex challenges from various angles to reduce health disparities, stimulating creativity and enhancing the quality and relevance of their work. Most importantly, By nurturing a diverse and inclusive research training environment, society benefits from groundbreaking discoveries and advancements and paves the way for a more equitable and just scientific community.

The Bioethics Interest Group (BIG) at The George Washington Milken Institute School of Public Health hosts reoccurring thoughtful and stimulating webinar series on various topics relating to "Bioethics Within The Field Of Public Health."
