2016 Latina Researchers Conference
Increasing the Pipeline for Future Scholars
San Antonio, Texas

ABOUT THE CONFERENCE: In response to the underrepresentation of historically disadvantaged populations with advanced social and behavioral science degrees, STEM degrees, or in advanced research and academic positions, the conference seeks to:
- Increase exposure of advanced research careers in the academy to the next generation of investigators,
- Ensure underrepresented scholars are equipped with access to role models and networking opportunities to succeed in the academy and in research activities,
- Increase efforts to recruit and retain underrepresented graduate students, researchers and faculty members.
The conference includes plenary discussions and presentations by renowned researchers and activist scholars. The conference also features early career investigators during poster sessions, and includes networking events to connect rising investigators to senior scholars and researchers.
ATTENDEES: The Latina Researchers Conference brings scholars, researchers and aspiring investigators from across the United States to address the underrepresentation of diverse scholars in research activities and in academia. Participants include research scientists, academicians, higher education administrators, scholars, students and members of professional organizations and research institutes.
