#ResearchDiversity Day 2021
NIA will host its annual #ResearchDiversity Day Twitter event on October 21st, 2021, from 1 – 2 pm EST. Supporting initiatives and programs dedicated to increasing research workforce diversity is a priority for NIA and NIH. Over the past four years, NIA has organized #ResearchDiversity Day to highlight and celebrate its commitment to diversity in aging research. This year’s event will highlight diversity supplements, the grantees who have received them, and frequently asked questions about diversity supplements.
NIA’s Diversity Supplement program supports the development of eligible trainee-candidates who seek independent and productive careers in research on aging and enhance diversity in the biomedical workforce.
NIA will be using the hashtag #ResearchDiversity on Twitter and will be joined by other institutes across NIH sharing information about diversity supplements and how they help increase workforce diversity. Join us on #ResearchDiversity Day and use the hashtag #ResearchDiversity to tell us what research diversity means to you!
