The workshop features didactic and interactive sessions on practical tips for mentoring including sessions on the meaning of mentorship, leadership styles, emotional intelligence, distance mentoring, team-based mentoring, individual development plans, funding sources for mentoring efforts, time management, and teaching work-life balance to mentees. The workshop also involves discussion of barriers related to being an early career investigator of diversity (e.g., microaggressions and unconscious bias) and how to be anti-racist as a mentor.


Descriptions and findings from UCSF workshops are found here: 1st workshop, 2nd workshop, 3rd workshop.


This workshop is co-sponsored by the Fostering Diversity in HIV Research Program (R25MH119857) and the Harvard University CFAR (P30 AI060354).


Eligibility: Investigators who are currently mentoring early career researchers engaged and/or interested in HIV research. Institutional affiliation does not need to be within the Harvard system.


Registration for the workshop closes Monday, October 17 or sooner if capacity is met!
