The Facets of Diversity: The EFMC Perspective.

Borsari, Chiara, Matagne, Brieuc, Goncharenko, Kristina, Moreira, Rui and Auberson, Yves (2022) The Facets of Diversity: The EFMC Perspective. ChemMedChem. e202200245. ISSN 1860-7187


Diversity in science refers to cultivating talent, while promoting full inclusion across the community. In medicinal chemistry and chemical biology, it enhances creativity and encourages contributions from multiple perspectives, leading to better decision making and broader scientific impact. The European Federation for Medicinal chemistry and Chemical biology (EFMC) embraces and promotes diversity, to ensure representation of all talents, and enable equality of opportunity through fairness and transparency. EFMC has historically paid continuous attention to diversity in terms of culture, geography and equilibrium between academia and industry, with over the last few years a focus on increasing gender balance, aiming at a fair representation of the scientific community and equal opportunities independently of gender. EFMC promotes cultural diversity as it reinforces openness and mutual respect. All scientific organizations of a scope compatible with its remit are welcome within EFMC, where their members benefit from a welcoming, psychologically safe, and stimulating environment. Herein, we describe the state of diversity within the EFMC, how the situation has evolved over the years and where diversity should be further encouraged.
