What: The Diversity Program Consortium (DPC) is a network of institutions, funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), to improve training and mentoring and to enhance individuals' success in biomedical research careers. This initiative aims to transform institutional culture and biomedical training and mentoring nationwide.

Who: Students, faculty, staff and leaders from many disciplines and institutions are part of a movement to enhance diversity in the biomedical workforce. Ultimately, these efforts will help to engage a more diverse field of individuals in biomedical research careers.

How: DPC partners are developing, implementing, assessing and disseminating innovative and effective approaches to training and mentoring individuals, from undergraduate programs through post-doctoral training, to foster successful research careers.

Why: People from different backgrounds bring unique ideas, perspectives and direction to scientific research, medical practice, and social understanding. The DPC is one of many NIH-funded efforts working to promote inclusiveness and equity throughout the biomedical research enterprise. Along with staff from across the NIH, Dr. Hannah Valantine, the NIH Chief Officer for Scientific Workforce Diversity, plays a leadership role in the DPC.

When & Where: The funding for this project began in 2014 as a product of a working group charged by the Advisory Committee to the NIH Director to make recommendations to enhance diversity in the biomedical research workforce.  

Learn More: For emerging evidence and practical ways to diversify the biomedical workforce, visit the NIH Scientific Workforce Diversity site. To read more about the many ways that NIH is supporting cutting edge research, visit the NIH Common Fund.

 

The students page offers resources for our BUILD trainees, scholars and alumni navigating their educational journey during the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as opportunities to engage virtually.
