Inclusion Statement

The Bergland lab is committed to providing a diverse and supportive laboratory environment.

We aim to (1) be an inclusive environment, regardless of age, gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, pregnancy, marital status, family structure, disability, ethnicity, race, religion, nationality, or socio-economic background; (2) respect individual needs, styles, and career goals and mentor accordingly; (3) challenge each other to grow and learn as scientists and as humans; (4) be accountable to each other.

We support the Biology Department Statement on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion [link] and will work to advance the specific goals outlined in the Biology Department’s Action plan [link].
