Pride at NIH
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is committed to the principles of equal employment opportunity, diversity, and inclusion in our research and workplace. As part of that commitment, the NIH celebrates an annual Pride Month with a variety of activities that highlight the meaning of including the sexual and gender minority (SGM) community in our work. The Office of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI), the Sexual & Gender Minority Research Office, and the National Institute of Minority Health and Health Disparities sponsor events to address key areas of interest in working with SGM populations. The goal of these activities is to understand, in very specific ways, how research impacts sexual and gender minority communities, and how best to conduct research with and for SGM populations.
