I, Joan S. Jorgensen, am committed to creating and maintaining a laboratory environment that embraces and celebrates diversity. I have and will continue to work together with the entire Jorgensen Lab family to build and foster a warm, accepting, and inclusive working environment. The foundation of the Jorgensen Lab family is built on a team mentality to elevate our science and strive for excellence while upholding the highest standards for professional conduct. Our team is and will continue to be built to support each other through difficult and inevitable setbacks while we also recognize and celebrate momentous events—both large and small. Ultimately, I pledge to cultivate a pathway for each Jorgensen Lab family member to thrive and achieve their goals in a welcoming environment as they navigate their individual scientific career journeys.
