The lack of appropriate representation in subject populations is a long-standing challenge for clinical research. The IRB plays a central role in considering and promoting diversity and inclusion in human subjects research. This webinar reviews the rationale for improving diversity and inclusion in clinical studies and discusses how the IRB can promote diversity during routine reviews of clinical research protocols. Case examples and practical resources are presented.



This webinar discusses the following topics:

  • The Belmont principle of justice and the scientific merits of inclusion.
  • Practical actions IRBs can take to promote diversity in subject populations.



This webinar applies to anyone involved in the design, review, or execution of clinical research protocols. IRB professionals, IRB members, researchers, and study staff will benefit from understanding the importance of diversity and inclusion in research as well as learning about tools to achieve a diverse subject population.
