This is an all virtual event.

Mentoring provides guidance and support across the course of a career with different types of mentoring relationships needed at different career stages. Yet, training in how to mentor is rarely part of preparation for a career, leaving many researchers wondering how to develop the skills needed to be a good mentor. Our panel of speakers brings a wealth of experience in mentoring in different institutional settings and across different career stages from students to mid-career faculty. Join the workshop to hear them share stories of why mentoring matters.
