- BCRF will continue to maintain—and expand—a robust research portfolio that attacks racial disparities in breast cancer outcomes and care from all angles.
- BCRF will increase racial and ethnic diversity on staff when climate changes and hiring begins again.
- BCRF will increase ethnic diversity on volunteer boards including board of directors and scientific advisory board.
- BCRF will increase diversity of funded investigators and investment in breast cancer disparities.
- BCRF will increase blog and social media content to inform women of color about breast cancer risk, benefits of clinical trial participation in improving treatments for women of color with breast cancer.
- BCRF will create a more inclusive and equitable workplace environment.
“For years, BCRF has been—and remains—committed to addressing unacceptable disparities in breast cancer outcomes. Among the most critical is the fact that Black women are 40 percent more likely than white women to die from breast cancer in the U.S. BCRF researchers are working to close this life-threatening gap through science aimed at improving outcomes for Black women, and ultimately, bringing the end of breast cancer into focus for all.”
