About Us

The Segarra Lab environment

As a lab and an academic community, we recognize that institutionalized discrimination persists in all fields including in science, can be based on race, gender, age, socioeconomic status or disability among other attributes. Our mission is to cultivate an environment of openness and inclusivity, where every voice is not only heard but valued. We believe in fostering a culture of robust yet respectful dialogue, where ideas flourish and diverse perspectives enrich our scientific endeavors. Our strength lies in the diversity of experiences, backgrounds, and viewpoints that each member brings to the table. Embracing this diversity fuels innovation, cultivates varied skill sets, and deepens our understanding of the world.

We pledge to honor and celebrate the unique perspectives, approaches, and contributions of every individual within our lab. Recognizing that growth requires introspection and accountability, we commit to learning from our missteps and actively striving to uphold our principles of inclusivity and diversity.

This statement serves as a living document that is re-visited and revised quarterly.
