2022 Workshop and Mentoring Program

2022 JSM Diversity Workshop and Mentoring Program

Workshop: Sunday August 7, 2022 

Mentoring Program: August 8 - August 10, 2022 

The 2022 JSM Diversity Workshop and Mentoring Program brings historically-underrepresented BIPOC (African/African-American, Hispanic/Latino, and Native American) graduate and undergraduate students, post-doctoral scholars, and junior professionals together with senior-level statisticians and faculty in academia, government, and the private sector in a structured program at the annual Joint Statistical Meetings. This year in Washington D.C., we host both a Workshop and a Mentoring Program as separate but related activities.

The Diversity Workshop will be conducted on Sunday, August 7, 2022. The objective of the workshop is to provide interactive sessions focused on career enhancement skills for statisticians at early- to mid-career levels. Statistics professionals, including (1) faculty from BIPOC-serving institutions who advise and mentor undergraduates in math and related disciplines, (2) faculty influential in the faculty and/or student recruitment processes at their home institutions, and (3) statisticians currently working in government or industry interested in establishing relationships with talented statisticians who may be candidates for future employment or research/service collaborations, are also invited to attend. 

In addition, a small group of workshop applicants will be selected to participate in the mentoring component of the program, which features small group discussions and one-on-one meeting of mentor-protégé pairs during the conference. The program will include the Sunday workshop and morning activities for Monday August 8, 2022 through Wednesday August 10, 2022.

Participant Feedback

We conduct a post event survey each year to help us improve the planning and delivery of future programs. Here is what a selection of last year's participants had to say! 

"There are lots of relevant and inspiring sessions and panels!" 

"Meeting successful statisticians of color was meaningful." 

"I appreciate the networking opportunities and the ability to ask questions, even in large group settings." 

"The speakers and organizers were emotionally supportive, and there was a welcoming atmosphere, professionally oriented but not constrictive or pedantic. There were interesting lectures, clear motivation and investment by all mentors, faculty and advisors."
