Schachner Lab Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Statement
The Schachner Lab is committed to fostering an environment of inclusivity and respect. We believe that it is critical for students from all backgrounds and abilities to participate in science, and our lab welcomes individuals of any ethnicity, race, religion, culture, gender identity or sexuality. We additionally welcome individuals with disabilities, and are happy to make accommodations so that everyone has the opportunity to participate. STEM labs usually don’t reflect the diversity of society at large, and we strive to provide opportunities to rectify this.
If any members of the lab feel that they are being discriminated against or harassed, they should contact Dr. Emma Schachner (eschachner at ufl . edu) or the Office of Diversity and Inclusion here at UF Vet Med (https://www.vetmed.ufl.edu/diversity-inclusion/)
