Our own Kecia Thomas, psychology professor and senior advisor to the dean in the Franklin College Office of Inclusion and Diversity Leadership, will take part in an interview on Minnesota Public Radio, giving advice on the importance of networking for young minorities:
Kecia Thomas, author of "Diversity Dynamics in the Workplace," wrote about mentoring as a key to minority success in professional environments. "Mentoring relationships provide critical personal and professional development opportunities throughout one's career," she observed. "These relationships are especially important for racial minorities who often lack access to informal networks and information that is required to be successful in academic and professional environments in which they are under-represented."
You can listen to the interview from link on March 14 at 10 am EST. Congratulations, Dr. Thomas.
