Advancing Diversity Programs Conference (ADPC)
Monday, June 24, 2019 - 8:30am to 5:30pm
Representatives from 24 biomedical research institutions
On June 24, 2019, the NIH Scientific Workforce Diversity office (SWD) convened distinguished senior thought leaders who have established and led national efforts to enhance workforce diversity and inclusion in the NIH-funded biomedical research workforce. This gathering, the inaugural Advancing Diversity Programs Conference (ADPC), also invited early-career scientists to share their unique perspectives and first-hand knowledge on successful strategies and programs with demonstrated success for enhancing diversity and inclusion. Over the course of the ADPC, SWD staff captured individual comments and suggestions to inform NIH’s efforts to disseminate successful models and best practices more broadly.
