The Urgency to Design and Implement DEI Strategies Shouldn’t Wait for Legislation 

This article is a part of our CTSC Special Feature series.

What does pending legislation say about DEI strategy? What do most of these introduced bills have in common? Where and when do I start? With diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility at the forefront of clinical and translational science priorities, researchers who are new to this space or want to ramp up efforts might contemplate  answers to these questions–and if they weren’t, they are now. 

Read Don’t Wait for Legislation To Begin Leveraging DEI on Clinical Leader, an online resource for clinical research professionals.  

If you’re ready to take the next step, schedule a Research Equity, Accessibility, Diversity, and Inclusion (READI) Consultation at sparc.case.edu today. Curious about what to expect in a READI Consultation? Read about our first READI Consultation with Dr. Valerie Boebel Toly in READI News.
