  • We demonstrate honesty, fairness, and the highest standards of ethical behavior as the foundation of all we do.
  • We advocate for representation in clinical research through collaborative efforts to build a diverse readily accessible and research-ready workforce.
  • We applaud courage to imagine what can be possible and welcome opportunities to pioneer innovative and dynamic solutions.

Meet Our Diversity Advisory Council (DAC): The DAC is a group of industry leaders who serve as a volunteer resource supporting ACRP’s efforts to increase diversity in the clinical research workforce. DAC members recommend strategies to recruit and retain outstanding, high-quality clinical research professionals and students from historically underrepresented groups.
