Centering Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion | MBTP Faculty Mentors

October 15, 2021 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm EDT

Centering Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) in Mentoring Graduate Students

*Note: The MBTP Faculty Mentors workshop series is restricted to NC State faculty involved in the NIH Molecular Biotechnology Training Program.

What do diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) mean in the context of mentoring? How do we address and acknowledge our own unconscious biases even as we lead our labs toward DEI practices? In this workshop we will move beyond awareness training to consider how faculty can model and facilitate behavior that promotes DEI. We will hear from two faculty who have thought deeply and developed strategies in this area.
