2015 Joint Statistical Meetings Diversity Mentoring Program

The American Statistical Association’s Committee on Minorities in Statistics is now accepting applications for the 2015 JSM Diversity Mentoring Program. The program will match faculty and professional statisticians with students for a 4-day mentoring experience during the 2015 Joint Statistical Meetings in Seattle. The aim of the program is to increase underrepresented minority presence in the Statistics profession, among faculty, in government, and in the private sector.

The JSM Diversity Mentoring Program brings minority graduate and undergraduate students, post-doctoral scholars, and junior professionals together with senior-level statisticians and faculty in academia, government, and the private sector in a structured program at the annual Joint Statistical Meetings. The program provides career information, mentoring, and a peer network to participants. Program activities will include small group discussions and one-on-one meetings between mentor-protégé pairs.
