Diversity and Inclusion

Diversity at SynbercDiversity of people and thought is a part of Synberc's fabric and a key to our research success. The ambitious aims of synthetic biology can only be realized by a research community that is as diverse as the communities it endeavors to benefit. We believe that it is the responsibility of every member of Synberc to consider and advance practices that best promote diversity and inclusion.

One of the ways that we aim to acheive this goal is by providing information and resources to our community. Check out our Diversity Perspectives and Resources Page to find lists of blogs websites and articles that are focused on diversity and inclusion in STEM. If you have any suggestions for articles please let us know!
