About the Training:

This presentation will focus on how to leverage what we know from social science about creating safe, inclusive, and equitable training environments for graduate students with marginalized identities (e.g., race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, ability). Participants will learn prevention and support strategies at the individual and system level that can foster graduate student belongingness, which can then lead to better training outcomes. The presentation will include discussions on how to create and maintain equitable environments with intention, and how to navigate the complexities of training graduate students in ways that balance care and belongingness while maintaining academic rigor.

Educational Objectives:

  • This session will increase participants’ awareness, knowledge, and skill level in defining and identifying safe, inclusive, and equitable training environments for graduate students with marginalized identities.
  • This session will facilitate participants’ abilities to create safe, inclusive, and equitable training environments in their own training programs.
  • This session will provide participants with prevention and support strategies for fostering graduate student belongingness and inclusion.
  • This session will provide a forum for authentic discussion about how to balance student needs with academic rigor.
