  • Create and sustain research group in which each individual feels safe and supported. We will discuss how to create a welcoming environment for groups typically underrepresented in higher education, while reflecting on our own identities and experiences and how they may be strengths or blind spots in our mentoring.

All sessions are on Tuesdays from 12:00-2:00 pm and include catered lunch.
