How do I use this new tool?

This tool was designed to be easy to use.  It approaches data collection from an individual level rather than center based approach.  Individual scholars and faculty members can access their own profiles and manage their information if they wish or center admins can update information for scholars and faculty members based out of their center.
To get started click on the 'VIEW ALL FACULTY/SCHOLARS' link to the left or click here.

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/
