Learn about Culturally Aware Mentorship at Nov. 29 forum

September 25, 2018  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

If you are involved in or interested in mentoring, you are invited to a Nov. 29 forum featuring Kelly A. Diggs-Andrews, Ph.D., who will present on Culturally Aware Mentorship.

Diggs-Andrews is CEO and founder of Diggs-Andrews Consulting LLC; master facilitator, Mentor Training Core, National Research Mentoring Network (NRMN); and certified trainer, Facilitator and Mentor Training, Center for the Improvement of Mentored Experiences in Research (CIMER).

Culturally Aware Mentorship is an innovative initiative launched through NRMN to enhance mentors’ and trainees’ ability to effectively address cultural diversity matters in their research mentoring relationships. The CAM initiative and approach are supported by evidence which indicates that broader participation of culturally diverse groups enhances the quality of research and practice in the biomedical, behavioral and clinical sciences.

Following Diggs-Andrews’ talk, seven faculty members who contribute enormously to the research environment at U-M will be honored with the 2018 Distinguished Clinical and Translational Research Mentor Award.

This event takes place on Nov. 29 in the Palmer Forum, Palmer Commons. Check-in and a light breakfast begin at 8:30 a.m., with Diggs-Andrews’ presentation starting at 9 a.m. and the awards ceremony immediately following.
