Mentoring Academy | Third Session

Assessing Equity and Inclusion and Fostering Independence

This is the third of four 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 Assessing Equity and Inclusion (Competency #5) and Fostering Independence (Competency #6) in mentoring relationships. 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 four sessions to complete all eight competencies and earn a credential. The Mentoring Academy builds upon the curriculum provided through the National Research Mentoring Network.

Objectives:

  • 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.
  • Define independence, its core elements, and how those elements change over the course of a mentoring relationship.
  • Employ various strategies to build mentee confidence, establish trust, and foster independence.
  • Identify the benefits and challenges of fostering independence.

Seating is limited. Please register to attend.
