Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Board

The Zuckerman Institute's Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Board advises Institute leadership on the best practices and structures that contribute to a more inclusive and diverse place of scientific discovery. The Board includes members from the Zuckerman Institute, Columbia University and key partners. The Board helps guide the Institute in directly addressing its goals of diversity and inclusion by both investing in people across the scientific enterprise (including pre- and postdoctoral scientists, staff and faculty) and by creating structures that promote equity.
