The sixth annual Equity in the Job Search Symposium was held partially online and in person on May 13, 2022. This year’s theme was “Mastering Inclusive Mentoring to Catapult Your Career”. As part of the symposium, twelve faculty from Yale and other institutions were recognized for their mentorship, including Reina Maruyama, professor of physics and of astronomy and a member of Yale’s Wright Lab.
The symposium website posted this comment about Maruyama’s mentorship: ”Dr. Maruyama has been very supportive during my appointment as a postdoctoral researcher in her group. She has been essential in promoting diversity in the physics department, particularly at Yale’s Wright Lab, and this can be seen in the members group. For her minoritized mentees, Dr. Maruyama has been a great mentor helping them develop their skills as PhD students and postdocs as well as navigating the intricacies of academia and how to prepare for the academic job market. Her mentorship has helped her mentees, other students, and postdoctoral researchers in her group, grow professionally.”
