The goals of the program are to teach future faculty (or scientists who expect to manage people in any career path) how to mentor, train and supervise inclusively in research.

Participants then can practice and develop their skills by taking on a CCSF Biotechnology Program intern, and receive coaching and support in teaching research techniques and supervisory responsibilities (including setting expectations, teaching/training/delegating, giving feedback, recognizing progress, articulating consequences, managing conflict and providing support). 

The Inclusive Research Mentor program:

1. Inclusive Research Mentor Course
Supervising, Training and Advising

Learn the theory on how to supervise, train and advise researchers from diverse backgrounds, and how to manage the inevitable role conflicts.

2. Inclusive Mentoring Fellows program for Bioscience Researchers

Mentor an intern from City College of San Francisco's Biotechnology Program and participate in a supported learning experience to become an inclusive mentor.
