Diversity is an essential aspect of any industry and the clinical research industry is no exception. A workforce that represents a range of cultural backgrounds, perspectives, and experiences can lead to more innovative and inclusive solutions. However, the clinical research industry is facing challenges when it comes to diversity, particularly in terms of gender and race.

According to a report by the Center for Information & Study on Clinical Research Participation (CISCRP), women make up only 35% of the clinical research workforce, and minority groups are underrepresented as well. This lack of diversity not only limits the perspectives and experiences that are brought to the table but also limits the potential study populations that can be reached.

Factors Influencing The Promotion Of Diversity

Promoting diversity in the clinical research industry is challenged by a scarcity of understanding of the varying duties and responsibilities involved in clinical trials, as well as the shortage of readily accessible, high-quality, accredited training in less economically developed nations. This is where TASK Research Academy comes in. Our aim is to provide comprehensive and high-quality clinical research training for any beginner and healthcare professional worldwide. Our “Foundations and Beyond – the clinical research journey” course is designed to provide a complete and holistic understanding of the different roles and responsibilities involved in the clinical trials process, including those of a clinical trials assistant, which can be an entry point into the industry without having any experience in research or a healthcare degree.
