Diversity Statement

Like all scientific work, plant breeding is conducted by and for humans. “Human dignity is inviolable” – each of us as a person is unique and particular, and the differences between us bring happiness and joy. In science, diverse hypotheses, perspectives, expectations, and opinions are crucial for progress. Consequently, we in the Division of Plant Breeding Methodology are committed to fostering a working environment that values and promotes diversity at all levels, especially with regard to gender, skin color, age, religion, and sexual preference.
