Diversity + Inclusion
At the Morality Lab, we are committed to creating an environment in which all of our undergraduate and graduate students, postdoctoral associates, staff, and collaborators are valued and respected. We believe in the inherent value of diversity in race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, disability status, age, socioeconomic background, nationality, religion, and other important social identities. We also do not see these categories as essentialized labels, but as some of the factors that shape people’s experiences, values, and opinions. We seek to promote diversity within our research team, as well as in the people we study and the methods we use.
We hold several defined commitments towards diversity and inclusivity, understanding that these are a work in progress. 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 well-being of all lab members, encouraging a healthy work-life balance, and providing clear and accessible resources for support. Additionally, we are committed to creating an environment where diversity is valued and where there is transparent and open communication among lab members. To this end, we are dedicated to participation in bystander intervention workshops, regular solicitation and discussion of feedback from our research team about ways to improve lab culture, and creating opportunities to learn about each other’s heritage and culture. We welcome the voices of our members to shape and reshape our space into one where diversity can flourish.
