The Inclusive Leadership Workshop, held in Seattle, Washington from April 22-25, 2024, is sponsored by the UW Institute for Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine and the Office for Research and Graduate Education.
The in-person, four-day program is for postdoctoral researchers from outside the University of Washington who are exploring academic career paths in regenerative medicine/engineering and related fields and who are committed to inclusive teaching, mentoring, and lab leadership.
The workshop is designed to encourage academic careers from traditionally underrepresented U.S. demographic groups and is open to individuals of any ethnicity, race, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, ability, veteran status, socio economic status, first generation to college status, and religion. Postdoctoral researchers from marginalized and historically excluded backgrounds (e.g., Black, LatinX, Hispanic, Indigenous, disabled, LGBTQ+) are highly encouraged to apply.
There are no program costs for the Inclusive Leadership Workshop. Additionally, hotel accommodations in Seattle will be provided and financial support for travel to and from Seattle is available.
The priority deadline to apply for the Inclusive Leadership Workshop is January 10, 2024. Space in the workshop is limited and preference will be given to applications received before the deadline. We encourage you to apply early! Scroll down for more information about how to apply.
