published

Tisha King-Heiden, Biology, co-authored the article "The Importance of Diverse Mentors in the Sciences" in SETAC Globe published on Thursday, Jan. 14 by ET&C. This opinion piece was written with colleagues from SETAC North America in response to the recent Wall Street Journal op-ed condemning first lady elect, Jill Biden, for using her doctoral prefix and the now retracted Nature Communications article that used inappropriate analyses to suggest female mentorship has a negative impact on the careers of others in science. Our piece is intended to highlight the current data that actually supports the opposite findings, to identify data gaps that remain in this field, and to offer a call to action to increase diversity of mentors in the sciences.
