What is Diversity, Equity and Inclusion?
Diversity is the process of including and involving people from a range of different social and ethnic backgrounds and of different genders, sexual orientations, economic backgrounds, religions and (dis)abilities.
Equity is a process that recognizes that each person has different circumstances and distributes the resources and opportunities needed to reach an equal outcome by promoting justice, impartiality and fairness within the procedures and processes by institutions or systems.
Inclusion is the practice of welcoming and providing equal access to opportunities and resources for people who might otherwise be excluded or marginalize

We are committed to diversity, equity and inclusion because

We have partnered with the Integrated Program in Biochemistry here at UW Madison to support diversity, equity and inclusion in the sciences.
