About the Latina Researchers Network: The Latina Researchers Network was founded in 2012 in response to the underrepresentation of historically disadvantaged populations with advanced degrees and in support of examining the barriers and opportunities for advancement in research and academic positions. The Network was established to create a multidisciplinary and vibrant supportive community that can ensure the next generation of investigators has access to role models, allies and networking opportunities to succeed in academia.
