In 2019, the RQR designed its Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) policy. The RQR is a network that aims to be diverse and attractive.
The RQR EDI committee includes researchers, students and administrative staff.
The RQR’s EDI activities are also very diverse. Webinars, conferences at annual symposia, and participation in EDI activities outside of RQR are organized. Parental and recruitment scholarships are offered. An educational tool for the scientific community is being developed.
Many EDI resources are available to RQR members.
