Scientists are increasingly being told by funders, through mandates and policies, that their research should be more open and equitably inclusive of diverse perspectives.

Bringing diverse perspectives to bear on scientific questions and openly sharing results to allow wider scrutiny and reuse only makes science better. However, too often mandates neglect one crucial question: how?

In this webinar we talk to representatives from two funding organizations who are going beyond mandates to actively provide guidance and funding specifically targeted at creating research contexts within which science and society can thrive.
