About This Event
Members of the Roundtable on Black Men and Black Women in Science, Engineering, and Medicine will hold a virtual workshop to examine how to strengthen mentoring and advising of Black students in science, engineering, and medicine, to increase the number of Black people pursuing careers in those fields.

Workshop participants will explore the current models used for mentoring and advising (with well-articulated outcomes), and the effectiveness of those models, with a particular focus on the reality of structural barriers and systemic racism.

Discussions will also address the role of institutional leadership in the academic setting in strengthening mentoring and advising. Major objectives of the workshop will include:

  • To examine the criteria needed to evaluate a successful pipeline program for Black people pursuing education and careers in science, engineering, and medicine
  • To explore the definitions and practices of mentoring, advising, sponsorship, and related roles in order to clarify their functions.
