The EbD Metrics Framework is a tool developed by the MRCT Center in collaboration with colleagues from professional, trade, academic, regulatory, and patient advocacy organizations. It is designed to advance organizational diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) efforts; orient users toward potential entry and follow-up strategies; and provide guidepost measures for assessing and reporting on progress.
