We’re pleased to share that First Workings and the Center for Scientific Diversity at Mount Sinai were included in Tribune Content Agency’s Careers Now column: Why mentorship is important, especially to young adults from underrepresented groups.
In this article, Careers Now columnist Kathleen Furore, connects with industry leaders about the importance of mentorship opportunities for young adults from underserved groups. First Workings’ Founder and Executive Director, Kevin Davis is quoted about the benefits of mentorships: “Crucially, mentors can advocate for students from underrepresented communities, while also providing a safe space for students to explain any barriers they face.”
The article also quotes Dr. Emma Benn, the center’s founder, introducing First Workings’ partnership with Center for Scientific Diversity: “A new partnership between CSD and First Workings, for example, exposes high school students from underrepresented groups to careers in science, technology, engineering, and medicine (STEM). According to Davis, First Workings connects teens interested in medical and science fields with mentors and internships at the Center.”
