ACRP Launches Diversity Advisory Council
The Association of Clinical Research Professionals (ACRP) has formed a diversity advisory council to assist the association’s efforts to promote greater diversity in the clinical trial workforce.
The seven-member council — which will include representatives from pharma, CROs, sites and advocacy groups — will recommend strategies to recruit and retain clinical research professionals and students from historically underrepresented groups.
ACRP says the council will provide valuable guidance on recruitment and retention efforts for its Partners in Workforce Advancement group, which is focused on expanding the clinical research workforce and setting and supporting standards for workforce competence. It will advise on diversity and inclusion in the workplace and provide recommendations and strategies on culture, climate, equity, inclusion and workplace needs.
