Diversity and Inclusion Statement
As members of the Bagnat lab, we are proud to actively and intentionally create an inclusive lab environment. Our goal is to have a team whose resilience, creativity and innovation is bolstered by mutual support and respect. We believe that science is for everyone. Having a diverse lab community is key to making new discoveries because it broadens our views on life and science. The Bagnat lab recruits students, trainees and staff from diverse backgrounds. We enthusiastically support colleagues from diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds, members of the LGBTQ community, parents and women in STEM. Our team is continuously educating ourselves so that we can optimally advocate for our colleagues and improve diversity in STEM and the field of cell biology.
