Editorial Reviews

Review

From the reviews: “In this fourth volume in the Mentoring in Academia and Industry series, the focus is on mentoring to develop as well as maintain a diverse scientific community. … The book is clearly directed at students, but raises important points for advisors as well. … would certainly provide the basis for excellent guidance sessions. … much of the advice about finding mentors and maintaining relationships, as well as the information on choosing careers, will be of benefit to any student.” (Marion C. Cohen, Doody’s Review Service, January, 2010)

From the Back Cover

Mentoring has always been an important factor in life and particularly in academia. In fact, making choices about educational pursuits and subsequent careers without input from mentors can prove disastrous. Fortunately many individuals have "natural" mentors and for them these choices are greatly facilitated. Others are not privileged with natural mentors and as such often struggle with making these tough choices. Many times these individuals are from under served and disadvantaged backgrounds, where mentors are too few and far between. For them, deciding on which career path to take can be based not only on insufficient information but oft times inaccurate information. Although the tips in this monograph are designed for helping all individuals who are interested in pursuing the study of science and science careers, a special mentoring focus is on those students who have not experienced the advantages of the privileged class. Additionally, tips are included for those who are interested in effectively mentoring these individuals. How and why a person gets to that point of wanting to mentor is not as important as the fact that they have made that commitment and this monograph will help them do exactly that.

More About the Author

I am a scientist, trained specifically with a PhD in the field of reproductive endocrinology. With that background, I conducted research at the University of Michigan Medical School for 20 years before relocating to CSU Dominguez Hills in Carson, CA as a professor of biology and the pre-health advisor. Along with my interest in reproductive endocrinology, I have made a major commitment to addressing the under representation of minorities in academia and specifically in the sciences. I accomplish this through teaching courses such a Minority Health Disparities as well as presenting seminars and mentoring students about career development at Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) across the country. It is in fact that experience that led me to write my book on mentoring and diversity.
