6th Annual Mentoring the Mentors Workshop

The Registration Link for the 6th annual Mentoring the Mentors Workshop for HIV Researchers – to be held Monday and Tuesday January 28th and 29th, 2019 in San Francisco – IS NOW OPEN.

Investigators interested in attending the workshop are asked to complete the Registration Form.  The application process for participation in the workshop will close on Friday November 23rd, 2018.  Registrants accepted to participate in the workshop will be notified by email the week of December 3rd, 2018.

The 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 workshop 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, leadership styles, manuscript writing, grant writing, individual development plans, teaching work-life balance to mentees, alternative funding strategies, forming teams, giving and receiving feedback, etc. Descriptions and findings from the 1st workshop, the 2nd workshop and the 3rd workshop are found here.

There will be travel and lodging scholarships available to support airfare/hotel for selected applicants based on need. Potential participants interested in applying for the travel scholarship should indicate this interest on the Registration Form  and should also send a recent CV along with a cover letter indicating your interest in mentoring training to Stephen May at Stephen.may@ucsf.edu.

The coordinator of this event is Steve May, Division of HIV, ID and Global Medicine (stephen.may@ucsf.edu or 415-476-4082 x 138).  Please forward this announcement to relevant listserves or interested faculty.

Hope to see you there!
