The NIH/NIDDK and NIH-Funded Nutrition Obesity Research Centers (NORCs) are hosting a seminar series focused on identifying and addressing barriers to advancement of individuals who are underrepresented in academia. The goal will be to provide specific recommendations to improve equity and inclusion for the NORCs, NORC-associated institutional leadership, and scientific societies such as the American Society for Nutrition (ASN) and The Obesity Society (TOS). The initiative will be initially delivered virtually with the agenda consisting of presentations by leading experts, followed by small group discussions. Speakers will identify challenges, solutions, opportunities, and future needs for successful recruitment, retention, and advancement for researchers from groups underrepresented in academia. All sessions will be recorded and widely distributed through NORCs, NIDDK, the American Society of Nutrition, The Obesity Society, and other interested groups.
