Diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) are important factors to consider in the innovation economy, as they can have a significant impact on the success and sustainability of a business. Having a diverse team can lead to a wider range of perspectives and ideas, which can lead to more innovative and creative solutions and better connection to customers.

During this panel session, we will hear about approaches to increase diversity and inclusion in research, entrepreneurship, and commercialization.

This event is the 7th session in the 2022-2023 Bench2Market Talks series, which was created to provide commercialization guidance to the university research community.
