STEMskiller: Skill Set Map for Mentors of Early Career Researchers
Different institutions have different definitions for “diverse” student populations based on local circumstances. Mentors may struggle with inclusivity issues in this area, particularly in STEM-related fields. Resources listed below provide guidance regarding inclusivity issues.
Useful resources on Inclusive mentoring:
MIT Career Advising & Professional Development. (2020). Diversity Resources. https://capd.mit.edu/resources/diversity-resources
In addition to serving as a model for other institutions, this page includes useful “Tips for successfully navigating conferences” and additional “Identity Based Resources” (i.e., career and networking resources) for the U.S. context: African American/Black, Asian American & Pacific Islander, Undocumented (i.e., non-citizen), First Generation, Latino/a/x, LGBTQ, Multiracial/Multiethnic, Native American, Students of Color, Students with Disabilities, Veterans, Women.
