Mycobacterium tuberculosis is a disease that disproportionately affects marginalized communities worldwide. In the Fortune Lab, we believe that solving this problem will require a team of individuals from diverse backgrounds and experiences. This diversity fuels the innovative environment necessary for excellent science. To create this collaborative and diverse space, we are committed to making space for all, including persons with disabilities, persons from various racial and ethnic backgrounds, from various cultural or religious backgrounds, regardless of their gender, sex, or orientation. We are dedicated to fighting biases across a variety of spectra, and to holding ourselves and the scientific community at large to a high standard of openness. Structural inequalities have been pervasive in science for decades, and ongoing attention to attitudes and behavior is necessary for the ethical and creative integrity of our work. We are engaged in ongoing work with current and future lab members in order to constantly update and build a more diverse and inclusive space.
