The 2022 JSM Diversity Workshop and Mentoring Program brings historically-underrepresented BIPOC (African/African-American, Hispanic/Latino, and Native American) 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. This year in Washington D.C., we host both a Workshop and a Mentoring Program as separate but related activities.
The Diversity Workshop will provide interactive sessions focused on career enhancement skills for statisticians at early- to mid-career levels. Statistics professionals, including(1) faculty from BIPOC-serving institutions who advise and mentor undergraduates in math and related disciplines, (2)faculty influential in the faculty and/or student recruitment processes at their home institutions, and (3) statisticians currently working in government or industry interested in establishing relationships with talented statisticians who maybe candidates for future employment or research/service collaborations, are also invited to attend.
In addition, a small group of workshop applicants will be selected to participate in the
Mentoring Program, which will match individuals with mentors, and include programming to support effective mentor-mentee relationships.
Interested students and professionals are encouraged to
apply on or before May 31.
Limited student travel funding support is available. Full consideration for travel funding will be given to applications received by May 31. Applications received after May 31 will be considered as space allows.
