Thank you to all who attended the 2021 IGEN National Meeting and helped to make it a success!

The IGEN National Meeting provides an opportunity for organizations and individuals dedicated to advancing equity for Black, Latinx and Indigenous students in STEM graduate education to share ideas, learn together and develop/strengthen their networks.

Student participants are able to:

  • Develop personal and professional skills that will drive forward future academic and professional endeavors
  • Share research findings with the IGEN scholarly community
  • Exchange experiences with peers and potential employers (i.e. personal and professional networking)
  • Increase exposure to academic/professional opportunities

Employers and Educators are able to:

  • Learn about evidence-based inclusive practices (i.e. culturally responsive mentoring, advising, etc.)
  • Develop skills to lead equity efforts and facilitate organizational change
  • Increase their awareness of the racialized & gendered nature of research and academic spaces
  • Exchange experiences with cross-organizational leaders
