CPB Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Statement

The Department of Chemical Physiology & Biochemistry is committed to a workplace that promotes and values diversity. We believe that prioritizing inclusion, equity, and accessibility is key to the wellbeing of our members and fundamental to an excellent research and training environment. We are taking active measures to eliminate biases and inequities that have historically excluded people from the biomedical research community. Instead, we embrace our differences and recognize that diversity enriches our community and strengthens our scientific endeavors.

The CPB DEI committee is tasked with viewing the department activities through a DEI lens and identifying opportunities to advance diversity, equity, accessibility, and inclusion within the department of Chemical Physiology and Biochemistry.

The goals of our committee are to:

  1. Identify aspects of our workplace environment that can be modified to improve the day-to-day wellbeing of members at all levels of our department.
  2. Ensure that all faculty and advisors are adequately prepared to mentor trainees from diverse backgrounds.
  3. Raise awareness, and remind of the importance, of inclusivity in science.
  4. Serve as a resource hub to improve diversity, equity, and inclusiveness in the department and at OHSU.
