ARAYA lab commitment:

Équité, diversité et inclusion
Equity, diversity and inclusion

We pledge to make our lab a welcoming place

to grow and thrive as students and professionals.



Our first step is to acknowledge and identify the barriers to an equitable, inclusive and diverse  environment  

Inclusion is an action that we take every day

in our interaction with others.


We want everybody to feel they belong

in our team, that they are treated fairly and respectfully.

We welcome traditionally underrepresented groups to fully participate in and become leaders in science


Everybody is different and these differences are our greatest strength.


Big scientific advances need different points of view: We need your point of view!
