Diversity offers both challenges and opportunities for any relationship. Learning to identify, reflect upon, learn from, and engage with diverse perspectives is critical to forming and maintaining both an effective mentoring relationship as well as a vibrant learning environment. In this session, mentors will expand upon this by considering how to foster an inclusive environment where everyone can do their best learning and create the highest quality of research, both because of and despite their diverse perspectives.

Learning Objectives for Addressing Inclusion in Mentoring Relationships

  1. Improve and expand understanding of equity and inclusion and how diversity influences mentor-mentee interactions.
  2. Begin to understand systems of oppression and how they play out in educational settings and mentor relationships.
  3. Identify concrete strategies for learning about, recognizing, and addressing equity and inclusion issues to engage in conversations about diversity with mentees and foster a sense of belonging.

This workshop is designed for faculty members. A similar workshop for graduate students and postdocs will take place in the coming weeks.

Attendance at Session One is not required to attend this workshop.

This talk is aimed at defining and contextualizing gender biases that exist within STEM fields and outlining their repercussions within the trans community, emphasizing impacts to trans authors. Particular detail will be paid to addressing why many name change policies within STEM publishing are not supportive of trans authors, how these issues have been successfully remediated, and how trans inclusivity can continue to be centered in publishing and academia. Irving Rettig is a fifth-year Ph.D. candidate in the McCormick Lab at Portland State University. Over the last year and a half, he has worked closely with ACS, RSC, and Nature to develop and implement trans inclusive publishing policies. He is also a member of an academic work group that is advising the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) in rewriting their guidelines on author name change. https://pdx.zoom.us/j/88945698291 chemistry@pdx.edu chemistry@pdx.edu America/Los_Angeles public
