To mark Black History Month this October, the UK DRI community is celebrating the contributions and achievements of scientists with African and Caribbean heritage.
Over the month, our researchers will be highlighting the work of scientists who have inspired them and driven significant progress in brain research. We’ll also be pulling together some great resources to learn more about Black history in research, and information on initiatives to improve diversity and representation in STEM.
Prioritising inclusivity isn’t just the right thing to do – diversity of experience, perspectives and backgrounds increases innovation in science. Our efforts to increase the diversity of our team, ensure inclusion and promote equality of opportunity, align with our vision for the UK DRI’s Institute culture and identity as a world-leader in dementia research.
