Mentoring Up: Optimizing Mentoring Relationships

Friday, November 6, 2020
3:00 to 4:30 PM
via Zoom

As a mentee, it’s important to be proactive in developing your relationships with mentors. Perhaps you have thought about potential mentors but don’t know where to start. How do you establish those initial relationships, and what are good strategies to engage mentors?

Based on the Center for the Improvement of Mentored Experiences in Research’s Mentoring Up curriculum, this interactive workshop will help participants identify steps to take to engage with potential mentors, sponsors, and other supports. Participants will also develop and practice skills for connecting with potential mentors.

The session builds on a previous workshop, Developing a Mentoring Network, although attendance at the prior workshop is not required for registration.


Early-career faculty, fixed-term and tenure-track, are welcome to attend. We especially encourage early-career faculty participants from our TEAM ADVANCE Peer Mentoring Circles program to attend.

This session will be held via Zoom and portions may be recorded for TEAM ADVANCE participants unable to join. A Zoom link will be provided in the confirmation email and shared via Outlook calendar invitation.

The workshop is sponsored by Targeting Equity in Access to Mentoring (TEAM) ADVANCE and the Center for Faculty Excellence.
