White male professor, meet your minority female reverse mentor

She will enable you to recognize your bias and help increase diversity in your STEM field.

“The new, government-funded study in the UK will be centered at the University of Birmingham.

“’[W]e will trial some innovative interventions such as “reverse mentoring,” where a junior BAME [Black, Asian, and minority ethnic] woman coaches a senior male, white professor, and empowering academics to challenge senior-level decisions, with appropriate backing and support,’ said computer science Professor Jon Rowe, the program’s director, in a news release.”


Well, thank goodness that’s in the UK. It won’t happen here.

Wonder what “appropriate backing and support” means?
