Building Inclusive Labs, from the UCSF Office of Career and Professional Development, focuses on promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion in science and engineering labs in a series of upcoming workshops.
The workshops will cover topics such as creating inclusive lab cultures, addressing microaggressions and implicit bias, and building effective mentoring relationships. Led by experienced facilitators, the workshops aim to provide participants with actionable strategies for promoting inclusivity and advancing diversity in their labs.
The next workshop is called "Workplace Navigation Training: Utilizing an Interview to determine a 'Good Fit.'" The workshop will take place on Friday, April 21st, from 3-5pm PT and will be led by Naledi Saul, MPM, Director of the UCSF Office of Career and Professional Development.
Participants will learn strategies for using job interviews to determine if a potential internship or job opportunity is a good fit for their career and educational goals. The workshop will cover topics such as defining what a 'bad fit' or 'toxic work environment' is, clarifying personal goals before the interview, using questions to assess workplace alignment with personal values, recognizing verbal and non-verbal red flags during an interview, and more. All community college students, alumni, and faculty are welcome to register for the workshop.
