NHGRI hosts open session to discuss human genetics and genomics workforce demographics
This past month, the American Society of Human Genetics (ASHG) released the Human Genetics and Genomics Workforce Survey Report, which lays a foundation for building a diverse genomics workforce. The National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI), which funded the report, is assembling a panel to discuss these findings and their implications.
The National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) will host a webinar to discuss the key findings from a recently released Human Genetics & Genomics Workforce Survey Report. The panelists will discuss findings about the genomics workforce demographics, which include race, ethnicity, ancestry; age; gender identity; sexual orientation; disability status; and disadvantaged background.
The event is free and open to the public. Follow #DiverseGenomicsWorkforce on social media for more information.
