Diversity and Inclusion

The Marine Biological Laboratory is committed to the principle that diversity among its employees, visiting scientists, faculty members, and students optimizes scientific progress and training.  With a long history of convening individuals from around the world to learn and carry out research together, we invite others to join us with open arms.

We believe that the prominence and integrity of MBL is best served by employing and educating individuals from diverse backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives especially those that are underrepresented in science.

It is our goal—and a core value of the institution—to provide a community that:

  • Fosters an attitude of respect and inclusion for everyone
  • Recognizes the positive results that come from learning from one another
  • Treats every individual on our campus with dignity and respect in a safe and welcoming work and learning environment.

The Marine Biological Laboratory has been a proud member of the Woods Hole Diversity Initiative since 2004.  For more information visit the Woods Hole Diversity website.
