The fourth workshop of our Cohorts for Change series will explore developing strategies for advancing diverse, equitable, and inclusive representation across the breadth of the translational science community.
Facilitator Dr. Felicity Enders and CLIC selected the materials in the "Resources" and "Workshop Materials" tabs to use as tools to evaluate your implicit bias and learn more about hidden curriculum to better understand how to support the long-term career growth of diverse students, staff, and faculty in your institution.

The National Institutes of Health has made considerable investments to diversify the biomedical research workforce. Towards this goal, the authors partnered with representatives from several minority-serving institutions (MSIs) to develop training for the next generation of researchers. To ensure the most effective training program, the authors conducted a needs assessment with junior and senior investigators from the partnering MSIs. In 2016, the authors conducted focus groups and interviews with 23 junior investigators as well as in-depth interviews with 6 senior investigators from the partnering institutions with the goal of identifying specific areas of training and support that would help junior investigators at MSIs develop and sustain research careers.
