The inclusion of diverse populations in clinical research requires steady commitment and focus and is necessary to reduce disparities and inequity in health care. Further, inclusion in clinical research requires an integrated approach across the different stakeholders. It is often difficult to determine where and how to begin this process.

In this session of the MRCT Center’s ‘Leaning-in’ Webinar Series, speakers will discuss:

  • How to plan, resource, and develop a program to address diversity and inclusion in clinical research
  • Strategies of and with leadership to commit to and set expectations for diversity initiatives
  • Examples and experiences of organizations that are building and maintaining momentum toward inclusion in clinical research
