It is widely accepted that a diverse team that includes members of equity-seeking groups drives more innovative research and improves outcomes. In recognition of this fact, a growing number of grant programs have added requirements for reporting concrete actions to ensure equitable recruitment of highly qualified personnel, and measures to support an inclusive training environment. In many cases, these requirements are tied to merit indicators that impact the overall success of applications. Comprehensive EDI promising practices through a number of sources have been developed and released to support this shift. This presentation will provide examples of how research administrators can leverage available EDI promising practices by developing tools that connect broad recommendations and key questions to available resources, policies and context at the institutional level. The aim of this presentation is to provide practical recommendations for how researchers can move towards equitable recruitment and an inclusive training environment.
