Dismantling Barriers that Hold Black STEM Faculty Back
Recently, Lola Eniola-Adefeso and colleagues published a commentary in Cell describing the systemic inequities in research funding through the National Institutes of Health (NIH), which have created a barrier to the success of Black scientists. By funding applications from Black investigators at approximately half the rate of similarly trained white investigators, the NIH has created a burden on Black scientists that leads some to abandon academia, and slows or blocks promotion of others, limiting their scientific achievement and career trajectory.

In this webinar, Eniola-Adefeso will share the set of recommendations offered in the article for NIH policies to eliminate the funding disparity, as well as action items for fellow scientists, the private sector, and academia to overcome the racism that is endemic in the sciences.
