At the Morality Lab, we are committed to the creation of an environment in which all of our undergraduate and graduate students, postdoctoral associates, staff, and collaborators are valued and respected. We believe that diversity in race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, disability status, age, socioeconomic background, nationality, and religion adds value to our intellectual community. We also do not see these categories as essentialized labels, but as some of the factors that shape people’s experiences, values, and opinions. Diversity within our research team, as well as in the people we study and the methods we use, is crucial for improving our research.
We are committed to increasing the number of members of our research team who are from underrepresented backgrounds in academia. We are also committed to supporting the emotional wellbeing of all lab members and creating a climate in which diversity is appreciated, and transparent and open communication between lab members is possible.
