Diversity and Inclusion Statement
AADOCR is committed to increasing diversity and inclusion within the organization and the broader dental, oral and craniofacial research workforce. Diversity and inclusion are essential for research excellence. AADOCR’s goal is to achieve diversity at all levels of research – from trainees to senior researchers at all the places where research takes place. A diverse research workforce is one is representative of the United States population. An inclusive research environment is one in which people from all backgrounds feel welcome and empowered to make meaningful contributions to research.
Faces of Dental Research
