Black Women in Clinical Research Joins the Association of Diversity in Clinical Trials as a Supporting Partner

Article

The Association of Diversity in Clinical Trials (AOD) has announced a new partnership agreement with Black Women in Clinical Research (BWICR) allowing their 15,000 members an opportunity to participate in AOD benefits. The mission of the AOD is to establish standards and best practices for the clinical trials industry to improve the representation of diverse participants in clinical trials through the development, integration, and monitoring of quality and consistent diversity methodology across the research industry.

Danielle Mitchell, CEO of BWICR, stated, "The mission of the AOD meets our corporate goals in being a part of standardizing best practices for professionals and bringing training and certification forward in a structured and accessible way for our members. This commitment is exciting and will bring value to our industry as a whole."

Diana Foster, PhD, president of the AOD, credits Mitchell's story of having been blocked from entry into clinical research as the impetus behind her organization's mission.
