Diversity and the U.S. BRAIN Initiative: A growing body of research focused on the benefits of diversity shows that teams comprised of people from a variety of backgrounds and experiences produce better and more innovative products and ideas than a homogenous team. The National Institutes of Health, along with the other federal and non-federal organizations participating in the BRAIN Initiative, recognizes the benefits of a diverse workforce on scientific discovery, with a particular focus on enhancing the pool of individuals from backgrounds underrepresented in biomedical research. Accordingly, we seek to nurture appropriate representation of women, underrepresented minorities, and/or persons with disabilities as invited speakers in relation to their participation in the annual BRAIN Initiative Investigators Meeting. Successful submissions will be as specific as possible when describing the diversity of their panels.
