Mentoring the Mentors Workshop for HIV Researchers

For Mentors Interested in Nurturing Early Career Investigators from Diverse Backgrounds in HIV Research

Meeting Co-Chairs



The annual two-day workshop is an intensive and interactive meeting designed to provide mid-level and senior faculty in HIV research with the tools for more effective mentoring, especially of mentees of diversity (defined mainly as those from underrepresented racial/ethnic minorities). The 2017 Workshop Agenda is now available. The workshops discusses barriers related to being an early career investigator of diversity (e.g. microaggressions, unconscious bias), and features didactic and interactive sessions on practical tips for mentoring, including sessions on distance mentoring, funding sources for mentoring efforts, time management, manuscript writing, grant writing, individual development plans, teaching work-life balance to mentees, giving and receiving feedback, alternative funding strategies, etc. Descriptions and findings from workshops can be found here: 1st Workshop-2012; 2nd Workshop-2013; and 3rd Workshop-2015.
