This workshop is open to anyone (faculty, researchers, postdocs and graduate students) who will be mentoring an undergraduate research student this summer.

This workshop is designed to help mentors to work successfully with students of various identities, experiences and cultures. Dr. Charity Hudley will focus on improving the research experiences of students who are from backgrounds underrepresented at the graduate level at research institutions. We’ll discuss ways to actively make your mentoring practices inclusive as well as ways to mitigate possible unconscious and institutional discrimination in your research groups and beyond. Dr. Charity Hudley will also share approaches to addressing solo status, stereotype threat, and the imposter syndrome that actively support students and create inclusive academic environments. The workshop will be candid and interactive.

Participants are invited to submit questions ahead of time cnsi-csep@ucsb.edu as well as to let Dr. Charity Hudley know what resources you’d like available before and after the workshop.
