Bridge to Enter Advanced Mathematics (BEAM)
BEAM works to create pathways for underserved students to become scientists, mathematicians, engineers, and computer scientists — and hopefully statisticians!
From the BEAM’s website: “Despite decades of effort, low-income and minority students remain vastly underrepresented in science and math related fields. EAM works to address these statistics by meeting students early and bridging the gap between their aspirations and the opportunities provided to them.” Learn more.
Memorial Sloan Kettering’s Office of Diversity Programs (ODP)
From the ODP website: “One of the greatest challenges of Memorial Sloan Kettering’s recruitment efforts has been the limited pool of minority physicians and postgraduate researchers seeking careers in oncology. The Office of Diversity Programs (ODP) has implemented institution-wide and program-specific minority recruitment initiatives, many of which are focused on increasing the number of minority researchers and professionals in oncology.” Learn more.
The ODP developed the Summer Exposure Program (SEP) to provide exposure and support to underrepresented minority and under-resourced high school students interested in pursuing careers in the health professions: “Students learn about aspects of clinical cancer care, explore the interplay between research and clinical practice, and meet people in different health and scientific professions by shadowing a clinical or research mentor for the summer. Since 2005, more than 70 students have participated in the program. Learn more.
