Listening Sessions – NIH Stakeholders Discuss Racial & Ethnic EquityListening Sessions – NIH Stakeholders Discuss Racial & Ethnic Equity


Event description
NIH wants to listen and learn from YOU! Join a session and make your voice heard.

About this event

HOW: 24 hours prior to the scheduled session, all registered participants will receive an email from [email protected] with login information (Zoom link). Please look for this email.

The UNITE initiative was established to identify and address structural racism within the National Institutes of Health (NIH)-supported community and the greater scientific community.

NIH’s initiative aims to establish an equitable and civil culture within the biomedical research enterprise and reduce barriers to racial and ethnic equity in the biomedical research workforce.

WHAT: The listening sessions are part of UNITE’s efforts to listen and learn. Key stakeholders at all levels of the biomedical research community who work and serve in diverse settings and hold various roles, and who partner and collaborate with research teams have important experiences and insights to share.

The insights that you share will provide valuable information on the full range of issues and challenges facing diverse talent within the scientific and administrative workforce and will help develop priorities and an action plan.

WHEN: Please find the schedule of listening sessions below and register for a session that best aligns with your affiliation.

Wednesday, January 26, 2022 — 6:00 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. ET — Students and Trainees

Thursday, January 27, 2022 — 3:00 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. ET — Research Staff (Assistants, Associates, Technicians)

*If a language interpreter or reasonable accommodation (e.g. Closed Captioning) is needed, or if you have questions regarding the listening sessions, please contact [email protected].

** These sessions are intended to foster an environment where participants feel safe to contribute their unique perspectives candidly, as opposed to an effort to seek group or consensus advice. While participants may not agree with one another, it is important that we display respect for other’s perspectives and experiences. Detailed notes will be captured by an independent contractor and will not include identifying information.
