ATLANTA, GA – CMS Sloan students, scholars and directors attended the 24th Institute on Teaching and Mentoring in Atlanta October 2017. The Institute on Teaching and Mentoring, which is sponsored by Compact for Faculty Diversity, is a four-day conference with the largest gathering of minority doctoral scholars in the country. The Institute focuses on faculty and PhD student diversity. This year the two guest speakers were Judge Glenda A. Hatchett and Margot Lee Shetterly.
CMS Sloan students and directors met Margot Lee Shetterly the author of “Hidden Figures,” which reached number one in The New York Times Non-Fiction Best Sellers list.
