The second event of the Professional Empowerment Workshop Series

The goal of the series is to provide targeted professional development opportunities for career track faculty, appointed professionals, and staff with an emphasis on topics which are particularly relevant to underrepresented groups.

Participants will learn some of the curriculum from NRMN in creating a more skilled and effective mentoring relationship. You will be provided with a toolbox of strategies to use in creating effective mentoring relationships with your mentors and mentees including learning about your Communication Styles, establishing a Mentoring Agreement and creating an Initialized Academic Plan. Participants will gain knowledge and skills to:Identify roles mentors and mentees play in the overall professional development and effectiveness of their mentoring relationship, how to accommodate styles that differ from their own which enhances the diversity and vibrancy of their environments and community, develop strategies for guiding professional development, initiate and sustain periodic mentoring conversations, increase understanding of equity and inclusion and their influence on mentor-mentee interactions.
