Building on the enthusiasm of our first virtual annual meeting in 2020, we continue to bring the C-DEBI community together through a virtual meeting series. These virtual events are held monthly during the first week of each month, with a regular rotation of science workshops and professional development workshops. Each workshop contains about 90 minutes of programming, including plenary presentations by invited speakers, a community building breakout session, and a plenary Q&A session. To foster an open environment for data sharing and discussion, sessions will not be recorded.
The layout of the 90-minute meetings (all 10:30AM – 12:00PM Pacific Time) is anticipated to be:
- Welcome (10 minutes)
- Community building ice breaker (10 minutes; in breakout rooms if the group is large)
- Plenary talk(s) (30 minutes)
- Open Q&A (30 minutes)
- Wrap up (10 minutes)
Friday October 1, 2021 (10:30AM – 12:00PM Pacific Time)

Collectors, Nightlights, & Allies, Oh My! : Advice for Strengthening Cross-racial Mentoring Relationships
In this talk, Dr. Martinez-Cola identifies and describes three types of mentoring relationships she has encountered throughout her academic journey. Through a combination of storytelling and information sharing, Dr. Martinez-Cola hopes to inspire self-reflection that can lead to a deeper understanding of both mentors and protégés.
If you are an early career researcher (student, postdoc, junior faculty, etc.) who would like to help coordinate these events, please contact us!
