The Sleep Research Society Board of Directors has converted the Diversity and Inclusion Task Force into the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee and are inviting members to volunteer for this standing committee. The committee mandate is: The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee will assess the SRS membership and leadership, and recommend strategies to improve diversity, equity and inclusion within the SRS’s leadership and membership. The Committee will identify any barriers that may deter sleep/circadian researchers from underrepresented groups from becoming SRS members and will develop and implement initiatives to improve our recruitment and retention of members who would contribute to the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusivity of the SRS.
Volunteer committee members provide an invaluable service to the organization and to members by contributing to initiatives and projects that are critical to the field of sleep and circadian research. Members also gain professional enrichment through the diverse activities of a committee.
To volunteer, please complete the online Conflict of Interest form and submit your CV summary, no longer than two pages, or an NIH Biosketch to firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail to 2510 North Frontage Road, Darien, IL 60561.
