Mentoring Academy | Second Session

Addressing Equity and Inclusion

This is the second of three sessions in our our spring series of the Mentoring Academy. This session will, through interactive case studies, provide an opportunity to discuss best practices in Addressing Equity and Inclusion (Competency #5) . Mentoring Academy members, who are trained faculty recognized for their contributions to mentoring at the University of Pittsburgh, will facilitate the session. Participants can attend one session or attend all three sessions to complete all eight competencies and earn a credential. The Mentoring Academy builds upon the curriculum provided through the National Research Mentoring Network.

Participants will be able to:

  • Improve and expand understanding of equity and inclusion and how diversity influences mentor-mentee interactions.
  • Recognize the potential impact of conscious and unconscious biases on the mentor-mentee relationship and reflect on how to manage them.
  • Identify concrete strategies for learning, recognizing, and addressing issues of equity and inclusion in order to engage in conversations about diversity with mentees and foster a sense of belonging.

Facilitators: Linda DeAngelo and Yolanda Covington-Ward
