Equity, Diversity and Inclusion


The DEIA initiative’s mission is “to preserve and enhance the FNIH commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion by ensuring that all employees and other stakeholders are welcomed, respected and valued.” As an important component of the organization’s public health mission, this commitment includes advancing biomedical research to improve the health and lives of people from all walks of life, representing varied communities, diverse perspectives and different backgrounds. A DEIA Committee supports FNIH leadership in formalizing and implementing this vision.
