Community building

  • Annual Staff Scientist Retreat
    The retreat promotes interactions between staff scientists and fosters the collaborative culture of the Broad Institute.
  • Socials
    Our popular socials bring together scientists from different disciplines, programs, and platforms.
  • Monthly luncheons
    Each month we choose a topic and invite panelists and staff scientists for informal conversations over lunch. Topics range from specific scientific techniques like RNA-Seq to choosing a career path and navigating personal finances.
  • Onboarding initiative
    Our team takes a new member of the staff scientist community to lunch (with Fooda coupons) and helps them get a great start at the Broad.
  • Volunteering initiative
    We give back to the community and connect with staff scientists across the Broad by working together in small teams.
