Now in its second year, the Case Western Reserve University STEM Faculty Journal Club is focused on increasing recruitment and retention of historically disenfranchised populations in STEM disciplines.
The first meeting of the spring 2022 semester will take place Thursday, Jan. 20, from noon to 1 p.m. The meeting will be hosted by Blanton Tolbert, vice dean of diversity and inclusion at the School of Medicine.
Attendees will discuss readings from the New England Journal of Medicine with topics such as aversive racism in academic medicine, closing the gender pay gap, and race and ethnicity in clinical care presentations.
The Case Western Reserve University STEM Faculty Recruitment and Retention Journal Club is aligned with Pathway 4 of the university’s strategic plan, Think Big. These monthly meetings will focus on readings about best practices and research on faculty recruitment and mentoring, as well as other related topics that will engage attendees in discussion about the reading.
While geared toward faculty in STEM-specific fields, the events are open to everyone at Case Western Reserve.
