Informal round table discussion on current state of DEI in IDD research. No formal presentations or agenda, but an opportunity for researchers at any stage (i.e., students/trainees, early to mid-career to established investigators) to share and discuss successes and barriers in enhancing DEI in IDD research. This is meant to be a collaborative discussion on the topic with the overall goal of sharing experiences and brainstorming next steps. Attendees do not have to have an active DEI-related project to attend, but should share common goal of increasing DEI in all aspects of research—from workforce to participant sample to research questions/aims.
