Many of society’s most pressing challenges revolve around a range of inequities perpetuated at every level of society, from the individual to institutions to culture, with inequitable policies playing a sustaining role. It is thus not surprising that issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion are central in all three grand challenges the Center for Social & Behavioral Science (CSBS) seeks to tackle.
CSBS also considers diversity, equity, and inclusion in building collaborative teams and stewarding resources. CSBS prioritizes research carried out by scientists from multiple backgrounds and areas of expertise who bring unique strengths and insights. As part of this endeavor, CSBS values input on research and engagement from diverse members of the public.
