Started in 2013, R.A.C.E. (Research, Advocacy, Collaboration, Empowerment) Mentoring is an initiative and program co-founded by Drs. Donna Y. Ford, Michelle Trotman Scott and Malik S. Henfield. The goal of this virtual group is to provide mentoring to faculty and doctoral/graduate students of color, increase the representation of faculty of color on campuses and within the tenure pool, and to promote collaboration among academics in all educational settings (P-12, higher education) and at all types of colleges and universities (e.g., HBCU and PWI, private and public, online).
With the success of the R.A.C.E. Mentoring program (approximately 500 members), the RM Board of Directors decided to bring together participating members through the use of an interactive conference. With this inaugural conference, R.A.C.E. Mentoring aims to solidify its impact on the realm of higher education.
