Description:
CERF's Rising TIDES initiative promotes opportunities for all underrepresented minorities while cultivating a culture that actively engages and leverages diversity of all types. The Rising TIDES Conference Mentoring Program will jointly support underrepresented minority (URM) students and mentors to participate in CERF 2017 - 24th Biennial Conference in Providence, Rhode Island. Through joint support of both students and mentors, this program aims to enhance career development of URM students, ensure that students participating in the program will have sustained mentorship following the conference, help develop a community of practice for CERF members who are engaged in building diversity and inclusion within their own organizations and across institutions, and involve those who are already mentors of URM students in helping to transform CERF into a broadly inclusive society.

PROGRAM COMPONENTS:

Ten student/mentor pairs will be selected to participate in the Rising TIDES Conference Mentoring Program, including one from each Affiliate Society region and three from the community at large. The program begins Sunday morning, 5 November and extends through Thursday afternoon, 9 November. The following components apply to both students and mentors selected for this program:

- Paid conference registration fee

- Rising TIDES workshop Part I on Sunday morning featuring testimonials by URM professionals on paths to success and small group discussions with speakers, URM mentors, and other CERF members

- Buffet luncheon with workshop participants

- Rising TIDES workshop Part II Sunday afternoon on Building and Embracing CERF Diversity (expected for mentors; included among afternoon workshop options for students)

- Monday-morning breakfast with the full Meeting Mentoring Program
