Equity, Diversity, & Inclusion Committee

STEM Advocacy.

At the Institute for Myelin and Glia Exploration we value diversity. We commit to a welcoming environment for all, including people of any race, ethnicity, nationality, age, gender, sexual orientation, religion, socioeconomic status, language, (dis)ability, political perspective, underrepresented minorities, and people from disadvantageous backgrounds, or victims of any forms of violence. Our diversity, equity, and inclusion committee works to support our students, staff, and faculty, in order to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion within our institute, and ensure all are given equal opportunities and receive impartial and fair treatment.

At the Institute for Myelin and Glia Exploration, we strongly believe that diversity strengthens our science and is a resource and a benefit for everyone, and we stand against discrimination towards anybody.  

Feedback regarding concerns you may have, an experience you have had, or ideas on how we can improve diversity in our institute are encouraged and appreciated.
