2019 Training, Workforce Development, and Diversity Program Directors’ Meeting

Created: November 27, 2018

The 2019 Training, Workforce Development, and Diversity (TWD) Program Directors’ Meeting will be held July 30-August 2, 2019 in Rockville, Maryland. This meeting will focus on continuing to build and strengthen the partnerships and networks within the TWD community.

This meeting is primarily intended for program directors and associate deans (or the equivalent). It will address the value of sustained networking among grantees, students, and other communities served by these programs. The meeting will enable program directors to:

  • Learn more about other TWD programs
  • Establish connections with potential new partners, especially regional “neighbors”
  • Collectively address the Institutes’ research training objectives

Plenary sessions and keynote talks will focus on the diversity of the U.S. research workforce, STEM training in the context of National Institutes of Health (NIH)-funded biomedical and behavioral research, and innovative approaches for evaluating and assessing National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS)/NIH training programs.

NIGMS and NIH leaders will provide overviews of the Institutes’ training strategic plan and the implementation of the report from the Diversity in the Biomedical Research Workforce Working Group of the Advisory Committee to the Director of NIH.

Registration opens December 31, 2018. You can find more information on the meeting, poster session, and available travel grants on the meeting website.
