Diversity is essential for great science. Research and our experience both show that diverse groups generate better ideas and more creative solutions to problems than homogeneous groups. By recruiting diverse people to the Handelsman lab and empowering every member of our group to contribute to the scientific discourse, we can achieve our scientific potential.
We welcome and value diverse people in our lab and expect each lab member to uphold high standards of integrity and respect. We do not tolerate discrimination based on, but not limited to, ability, age, experience, and identities such as race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, and religion. We believe that each of us has a responsibility to prevent or address unfair behaviors within our lab and scientific environments and to contribute to a welcoming environment.
