Insight from impactful UMD mentoring program presented at U-wide event 

LSBE economics professors Ariuna Taivan, Gibson Nene, and Yufei Ren attended the 11th Annual Equity and Diversity Breakfast and presented a powerful poster on UMD’s Employees of Color and American Indian Mentoring Program. The three professors chair the mentoring program. Attendees flooded the poster session to learn about the mission, goals, and objectives of the program; the unique needs and challenges that faculty of color face; the student of color mentoring program, and more.
