Endocrine Society Response to COSWD Strategic Plan

February 09, 2022

Dear Dr. Bernard,

"The Endocrine Society appreciates the opportunity to respond to the Draft NIH Chief Officer for Scientific Workforce Diversity (COSWD) Strategic Plan for FYs 2022-2026. Founded in 1916, the Endocrine Society is the world’s oldest, largest, and most active organization of scientists and healthcare professionals dedicated to research on hormones and the clinical treatment of patients with endocrine diseases.

We enthusiastically welcome your vision to enable NIH and funded institutions to benefit from a full range of talent, fostering creativity and innovation in science. We also appreciate your action-oriented approach to the strategic plan, building on a strong foundation of evidence to “catalyze cultures of inclusive excellence.”

With your role as a Co-Chair of the UNITE Initiative, we recognize that there will be important synergies between implementation of the plan and other important efforts by NIH to improve diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) throughout the intramural and extramural research community. During our review of the draft Strategic Plan, we identified several areas where our recommendations to the UNITE Initiative RFI would also be consistent with the goals and objectives of the Scientific Workforce Diversity Strategic Plan."
