iBiology and NRMN present “Mentoring to Diversify the US Biomedical Workforce”

Mentoring is essential to improving the success of underrepresented scientists. On Monday October 5th, iBiology and NRMN co-hosted a live Q&A featuring Dr. Angela Byars-Winston of the University of Wisconsin-Madison; Dr. Kenneth Gibbs, Jr. of the National Cancer Institute; Dr. Joel Oppenheim of New York University; and Dr. Sonia Zárate of the University of San Diego. The event was moderated by Dr. Mónica I. Feliú-Mójer, Science Outreach Program Manager for iBiology and Vice-Director for Ciencia Puerto Rico (CienciaPR).
Panelists took questions from the audience and engaged in a deep discussion about culturally responsive mentoring and the importance of taking into account diverse cultural experiences to establish more effective mentoring relationships. Watch our esteemed panel of experts discuss culturally responsive mentoring: why it matters and how it can help diversify the U.S. biomedical workforce, concepts such as stereotype threat, and some suggested courses of action for researchers to maximize the productivity of lab teams through cultural sensitivity.
