Diversity is our greatest strength: An invitation to participate!
We passionately believe that diversity and inclusion are critical to advancing science. Diversity of thought creates the best ideas that can be incubated, grown, tested and expanded in many directions.
We also believe that multicultural inclusion contributes the varied perspectives that yield the best teams and outcomes.
We are the biomedical informatics team at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical CenterThis link opens in a new window. and the University of Cincinnati College of MedicineThis link opens in a new window., known on social media as CincyInformatix. We use computational methods to solve pressing health problems in bioinformatics, clinical informatics and genomics.
As a group, we brainstormed about what diversity and inclusion mean to us and how we can best express our thoughts to others. The results are these short videos that we now share with you, deliberately shot and edited with a grassroots approach.
If you like the sentiment, we very much encourage you to produce your own videos or other creative means of expression about what diversity and inclusion mean to you.
And please consider joining us. We are looking for the best and brightest students, faculty and staff to help us use computers to transform medical research and clinical care. Learn more about us here.
