New Season for Series
COSWD To Host Virtual Forum on Fostering Cohort Recruitment, Feb. 23-24
The Chief Officer for Scientific Workforce Diversity (COSWD) office is hosting its first Scientific Workforce Diversity Seminar Series event of the year on Feb. 23 and 24.
The Fostering Cohort Recruitment Virtual Forum will be held over 2 half-days (noon to 5 p.m. ET). It aims to galvanize the wider scientific community around the success of cohort recruitment models geared toward enhancing diversity, equity, inclusion and accessibility (DEIA) for faculty.
The forum will introduce attendees to faculty cohort programs that have successfully enhanced diversity both within and outside of NIH and delve deeper into the science behind why these programs are successful.
The event will explore these topics:
- faculty cohort recruitment adoption and dissemination
- the impact of faculty cohort recruitment on DEIA
- successful faculty cohort recruitment practices and potential barriers
- methods to effectively evaluate both implementation and outcomes
The Scientific Workforce Diversity Seminar Series was started in 2021. Its purpose is to share the latest research on scientific workforce diversity topics by engaging with interested professionals and researchers at NIH and beyond. Upcoming seminars will host renowned researchers who have contributed to the growing body of knowledge on pressing topics relevant to scientific workforce diversity, evidence-based interventions and more.
