NRMN Unconscious Bias Course Surpassed 1,000 Participants!
The NRMN Unconscious Bias Course was announced in the NRMN Newsletter on July 28, 2020 and it immediately drew so much attention that it forced us to upgrade our servers in order to facilitate everyone! That attention continued throughout the rest of 2020 and into 2021, so much so that as of Tuesday, June 8, almost 2 months before the anniversary, the NRMN Unconscious Bias Course surpassed 1,000 participants! This is also happening at the same time as our new career development webinar series, Unconscious Bias Course Webinar Series: Navigating Micro-aggressions in Academic Medicine, is about to launch. The first in this series will be held on Friday, June 18 at 11a CST. Follow this link to register in advance: https://unthsc.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN__51XUIChTg6_DAs2SYT_AA
Monday, July 5: NRMNet.net Will Have a New Look!
We are very excited to announce that the NRMN website (https://nrmnet.net) is getting a facelift! The past designs of the NRMN website have served us very well, but we’re ready to mature our aesthetic. The redesigned website will maintain all of the features that you’ve grown to know and love, just with cleaner lines and simple navigation. During the design process, it was a priority of ours to maintain the key elements of our home page and the menu, to ensure that you are always able to find what you need. The new design will launch on Monday, July 5, 2021 and we can’t wait for you to see it!
Coming Soon: Mentee Training Course
For many, starting work in a lab is a completely new experience with unfamiliar guidelines and protocols. The working relationships are different, the approach to research subjects is completely new, and the reporting of findings is not as previously expected. For too many people, this unfamiliarity contributes to a lack of science identity and sense of belonging in the STEMM fields. This is why NRMN has partnered with the duo that created Research Experience and Mentoring modules as well as a scientist that created Responsible Conduct of Research trainings to create a new course: Launching Research, Part 1: Laboratory Readiness. This course will introduce new researchers to the laboratory, discuss mentor and mentee responsibilities, cover Standard Operating Procedures, walk the learner through research articles, and many other topics! This first part of this course (Part 1: Laboratory Readiness) will launch this summer and the second part of this course (Part 2: Tools for Organization and Investigation) will launch in time for the Fall Semester.
