Mentoring Undergraduates: Techniques And Best Practices For Guiding The Next Generation Of Scientists

Anika Knight, UNAVCO Educational Specialist

Date: Wednesday, January 26, 2022
Time: 11:00 am PT | 12:00 pm MT | 1:00 pm CT | 2:00 pm ET

Establishing a mentoring relationship typically falls upon the mentee, which can leave individuals who could benefit the most (non-traditional & first generation students or individuals from marginalized groups) out in the cold. During this webinar we will cover techniques and best practices for establishing, maintaining or improving mentoring relationships with undergraduate students. While the topics covered will directly target undergraduate mentors they may also be useful for those working with high school or graduate students.

Time: 1:00 pm PT | 2:00 pm MT | 3:00 pm CT | 4:00 pm ET

The effects of intensifying global changes are here: wildfires, warming and acidifying oceans, sea level rise, and extreme weather events. The causes of global change and the mechanisms for mitigating future consequences are complex, and we need innovative scientists, engineers, and informed citizens to understand and how to respond to these challenges. Join us for activities and discussion exploring UC Berkeley's Understanding Global Change tools that allow you to engage students in the three dimensions of theNGSS by visualizing the Earth system and paths to a resilient future.



Climate Survey of the Geosciences: Disproportionate impacts on historically excluded groups

Date: Tuesday, February 15, 2022
Time: 11:00 am PT | 12:00 pm MT | 1:00 pm CT | 2:00 pm ET

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in the Geosciences continues to lag behind every other science. In order to change this we need to understand some of the barriers. The ADVANCEGeo Partnership workplace climate survey reveals a range of positive and negative experiences that can affect career advancement and retention in the discipline. We will explore some of the findings from the survey to come up with action items that individuals, teams and organizations can take to address some of the challenges to diversity, equity and inclusion in our field.
