LGBTQIA+ Inclusion – Inclusive Imagery

Case Study

Published: April 11, 2024

Abstract: Each of us feels more welcome to participate in a clinical trial if we see ourselves represented in the visual information communicated about the study, study site/s, and study staff. In the case study below, we illustrate how the MRCT Center worked to build LGBTQIA+ representation into the imagery that was developed for a specific product, the Clinical Research Glossary. The tool shares lessons learned by the MRCT Center based on insights and comments shared by the LGBTQIA+ Inclusion by Design in Clinical Research working group and mock-ups of two of the resulting images.
