NIH has developed a new portal with information on supporting diversity in NIH-funded research. The main areas of focus are: 1. Background on NIH initiatives in support of scientific workforce diversity; 2. Resources for scientific leadership & faculty members to use to further diversity in their programs; 3. Resources for investigators and trainees to develop their careers, find training and mentorship, and learn about others’ careers through personal stories and video interviews; and 4. Reports and data on diversity in the NIH-supported workforce, and in the broader research workforce. See https://extramural-diversity.nih.gov/
