For postdocs and doctoral candidates. Last in a series.

Participants will work with a community of peers to develop and improve their mentoring skills. By the end of the series, participants should be able to clearly articulate a personal mentoring philosophy to anyone inside or outside their discipline, and describe multiple strategies for dealing with mentoring challenges. The series will address topics such as: 

       Aligning Expectations and Assessing Competencies

       Promoting Professional Development

       Broadening Mentor/Mentee Experiences through Role-Play

       Enhancing Intercultural Awareness

       Fostering Equity and Inclusion in the Research Context

       Cultivating Ethical Behaviour

       Articulating a Mentoring Philosophy and Plan

Much of the content of these workshops is adapted from Entering Mentoring: A Seminar to Train a New Generation of Scientists; created by Jo Handelsman, Christine Pfund, Sarah Miller, and Christine Pribbenow, with support from Howard Hughes Medical Institute Professors Program (PI: Jo Handelsman).
