Rosetta Diversity Statement

Rosetta Diversity Statement

RosettaCommons exists to enable shared developments and discoveries. We believe in the power of community to accelerate science. We strive to make our community inclusive and equitable for people of all races, ethnicities, nationalities, gender identities, sexual orientations, belief systems, and socioeconomic backgrounds.

The Commons urges the individual research groups in our community to eliminate discriminatory policies and procedures in hiring and recruitment and to make efforts to increase the number of individuals from historically underrepresented groups in the Rosetta Community. It is incumbent on the Commons and the individual research groups to provide a workplace environment that is free of harassment, implicit and explicit bias, and welcoming to people of all backgrounds and identities.

These hiring and workplace practices are undertaken first and foremost because they are required to maintain an ethical and just community of scientists. Further, a diverse community enriches the experience of all members and increases the likelihood of novel approaches and applications of Rosetta science. Lastly, measures to increase the diversity and fairness of our research community will ensure that the next generation of scientists is drawn from all groups of people, resulting in a robust workforce on which the future of science and our society depend.
