The goal of the Inter-CFAR Women and HIV Symposium is to identify gaps in knowledge in HIV and women’s research and develop strategies that will move the field forward. In order to accomplish this goal, we aim to generate collaborative activity between CFARs and other research networks, highlighting cutting edge science and promoting opportunities for early career investigators.

Drs. Ingrid Bassett, Jessica Haberer, Bisola Ojikutu, and Markella Zanni are pleased to bring the well-established “Mentoring the Mentors” Workshop for HIV Researchers to Harvard Medical School (led by the UCSF workshop leaders and experts in the field).
This one-day abridged workshop (modeled after the two-day program held at UCSF since 2012) is an intensive and interactive meeting designed to provide faculty in HIV research with the tools for more effective mentoring, especially of mentees of diversity (defined mainly as those from underrepresented racial/ethnic minorities).
The workshop discusses barriers related to being an early career investigator of diversity (e.g. microaggressions, unconscious bias), and features didactic and interactive sessions on practical tips for mentoring, including sessions on distance mentoring, funding sources for mentoring efforts, time management, leadership styles, manuscript writing, grant writing, individual development plans, teaching work-life balance to mentees, alternative funding strategies, forming teams, etc.
Eligible Participants: Harvard-affiliated investigators with a faculty appointment currently mentoring early career researchers engaged and/or interested in HIV research.
Registration for the workshop will close on Thursday October 24, 2019. Registrants accepted to participate in the workshop will be notified by email. Space is limited.
