DIVERSITY EQUITY & INCLUSION
Created in 2016, the Diversity Equity & Inclusion Committee acts to share, disseminate, and educate the NEDRA community on issues related to diversity and inclusion in the workplace. Collaborating closely with NEDRA Programming, the Diversity Equity & Inclusion Committee arranges for relevant presentations and workshops specifically for the NEDRA community. The committee also aims to provide informational and action-oriented resources for all interested individuals within the NEDRA community, and, when valuable, members of any community.
The Diversity Equity & Inclusion Committee is currently co-chaired by Phil Harden of Connecticut College and Kiran Tahir of Yale University and Committee members include Daniella Arthurs of Trinity College, Lauren Casas of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Roslyn Clarke of Partners in Health, Samir Chapra of Princeton University, Maria DeJesus of Harvard Business School, Kristal Enter of Massachusetts General Hospital, Nancy Faughnan of Yale University, Bertrand Flament of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, and Samantha Harris of Combined Jewish Philanthropies.
