  • Next Generation of Biomedical and Behavioral Science Researchers: Breaking Through - February 19

    Contains 2 Component(s) Recorded On: 02/19/2019

    This webinar focuses on recommendations that aim to support the next generation of America’s biomedical researchers as they seek to identify and pursue the independent research career path that best serves them and the research community.

    Please register to view the recording.

    The 2018 National Academies report  “The Next Generation of Biomedical and Behavioral Sciences Researchers: Breaking Through” addresses the core challenges that early and mid-career scientists encounter throughout the biomedical research enterprise in the U.S., putting at risk their critical contributions in the areas of health and innovation. The report makes recommendations that aim to support the next generation of America’s biomedical researchers as they seek to identify and pursue the independent research career path that best serves them and the research community, whether in an academic, industry, government, or other setting, as well as promote a robust biomedical research community consisting of diverse and innovative researchers.

    To discuss these core challenges and provide practical recommendations for addressing them at the organizational and institutional levels, join study director Lida Beninson, PhD, in the fourth webinar of the series. She will focus on the implementation of two essential recommendations: 1) providing every postdoctoral researcher with a high-quality training experience that prepares them for success in their chosen career and 2) developing mechanisms to increase the number of individuals in staff scientist positions. This webinar will also feature examples of institutional implementation of these two recommendations.

    Webinar participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and interact with the presenters and other participants during the presentation.

  • Transforming Institutional Culture: Assessment and Intervention

    Contains 3 Component(s)

    In this webinar, NIH Chief Officer for Scientific Workforce Diversity Dr. Hannah Valantine will join Dr. David Acosta, AAMC Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer, for a presentation on organizational approaches to effect culture change.

    In this webinar, NIH Chief Officer for Scientific Workforce Diversity Dr. Hannah Valantine will join Dr. David Acosta, AAMC Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer, for a presentation on organizational approaches to effect culture change. NIH’s current approach and activities to achieve inclusive excellence in the scientific workforce center on monitoring, tracking, and implementing equity measures, as well as on increasing faculty diversity through a cohort-hiring model that creates a critical mass of diverse talent. As described in a previous webinar, NIH developed the NIH Scientific Workforce Diversity Toolkit, a free, downloadable interactive resource institutions can use to help advance their own faculty diversity and inclusion. Putting these tools to use requires institutional engagement and accountability, which is driven by collection of diversity and inclusion metrics, such as provided by the NIH Equity Committee, implicit-bias education, recruiting diverse talent, and proactive outreach to potential candidates.

    Undergirding those efforts is assessment of institutional culture and climate. The AAMC has developed a number of institutional culture/climate assessment tools.   The AAMC Foundational Principles of Inclusion Excellence (FPIE) toolkit was developed to provide academic medical institutions (AMI) with a practical set of tools to help address institutional culture and climate and provide AMI with a roadmap for achieving inclusion excellence in the learning & workplace environment. The FPIE toolkit provides a set of nine benchmarks of inclusion excellence, an institutional assessment survey, scorecard, and a database of identified effective practices for each benchmark accompanied by a set of resources that will assist the process of developing strategic action plans (including target goals and metrics) to achieve these benchmarks. Practical application on how this tool can be utilized and rolled out in an AMI will be shared. 

    After this webinar, participants will be able to:

    • Understand the value of assessing culture and climate in institutional settings.
    • Understand which approaches are effective in assessing institutional culture and climate.
    • Understand the importance of an integrated approach to promoting inclusive excellence through targeted interventions that promote equity.
