Strategically incorporating diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) topics and practices into the curriculum and research is challenging to many scientists. What to include, how and where to incorporate it, and how to practice it can be worrying. This session includes a panel followed by networking sessions to provide guidance to those hesitant to incorporate DEI.

A faculty panel shares experiences and resources, and assists members in creating DEI goals with the support to achieve them. Attendees then worked in virtual roundtables with facilitators to share concerns, incorporate ideas and develop action plans. The workshop's goal was to promote networking and opportunities for collaboration for those interested in DEI issues.
