NICHD Announces Opportunities to Engage and Learn

The Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute on Child Health and Human Development, a leader in research and training to improve reproductive health, has announced the following upcoming events:

NICHD STRIVE Initiative Workshop

NICHD launched its STrategies to enRich Inclusion and achieVe Equity (STRIVE) Initiative to improve equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) in all aspects of its research and workforce. STRIVE, which complements NIH UNITE, focuses on taking action to improve EDI within NICHD and the scientific community, and expand health disparities research to develop solutions that mitigate inequities.

We are excited to continue our STRIVE for Change Workshop Series. These virtual workshops will bring together stakeholders from diverse sectors to discuss health disparities research, identify knowledge gaps, and help chart a bold course for future activities.
