At the heart of our program is our policy development. We work closely with our NIH stakeholder community on the development of agency policy in the civil rights and diversity and inclusion arenas. Through committees consisting of partners at our institutes and centers, our office leadership and staff, we harness the ideas and perspectives needed to develop legally sound policy for the agency. Each year the NIH Director issues a policy statement to the workforce, underscoring its commitment to a workplace free of discrimination and declaring a value proposition for diversity and inclusion. To uphold that commitment, our committees and the policies we develop serve to articulate the rights and responsibilities of every manager, supervisor, and employee and are consistent with current law. Our equity, diversity, and inclusion experts conduct comprehensive research and stay abreast of changes in statutes, regulations, Executive Orders, new guidance from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the Office of Personnel Management, in order to ensure that our NIH policies remain current and that our workforce understands these changes.
