The National Research Mentoring Network to Diversify the Biomedical Workforce (NRMN), headquartered at Boston College, invites you to a forum where outstanding leaders who have led innovative initiatives to address this issue on their campuses for undergraduates, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and faculty, will discuss their programs.  The forum will be held on Friday, October 16, 12:30-4 pm in the Murray Function Room, Boston College.  This presentation will allow for an open discussion on the best practices and how you might implement change at your institution to create a more inclusive environment. Participate in our panel discussion about the challenges and opportunities of diversifying the science workforce, and network with other leaders committed to institutional diversity and inclusion in New England.

Following the panel presentation, one of our panelists Dr. John Matsui from the University of California, Berkeley and a recent awardee of the Presidential Award for Excellence in Science, Mathematics and Engineering Mentoring will present a Keynote talk on his journey.  Please make sure to RSVP here.  Photo by tylerhoff
