The Science of Effective Mentoring in Science, Technology, Engineering, Medicine, and Mathematics (STEMM)

Workshop on Inclusive Mentorship Excellence in STEMM: New Knowledge, Ideas, and Practice

April 11-12, 2018,
National Academy of Sciences Building, 2101 Constitution Ave, NW, Washington, DC 20418

The workshop is part of a larger effort being organized by the Board on Higher Education and Workforce at the National Academies to heighten the quality, vigor, and innovation in the U.S. STEMM enterprise by increasing the diversity of individuals, research teams, and leadership in STEMM fields. The Committee on the Science of Effective Mentoring in STEMM seeks to enhance the advancement of historically underrepresented populations in STEMM through the systematic compilation and analysis of the current research on mentorship in STEMM and the creation of an evidence-based, online resource guide to assist practitioners in the construction of customized, multidimensional mentoring programs for undergraduate and graduate students preparing for careers in scientific research.
