The value in diversity of thought, expertise, approach, personal experience, and background is embedded in the fabric of BIO5, and it is our aim to foster an inclusive, open-minded, and supportive environment. In an effort to discuss the deliberate design of this culture, we will host a quarterly event called BIO5 Ignites Science event beginning this fall with a moderated, interactive table discussion between some of our inspiring scientists. The topic will be about Diverse Backgrounds and Thinking in STEM.
