NDEW 2015

The aim of this workshop was to improve diversity equity in academic chemistry by helping to change the infrastructure from the top down. As such, the majority of workshop participants were chairs or thought leaders of the leading research-active chemistry departments and experts from the social and behavioral sciences. Working together, we were able to identify issues that can be addressed by department-wide initiatives, to design such initiatives, to assess their efficacy, and to share these effective practices among the chairs. Information about previous NDEWs and related workshops, including reports and presentation slides, can be found on the workshops page.
