Mentoring Up: Optimizing Mentoring Relationships

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 Your 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 workshop will be held in person (Room 304, Wilson Library). Lunch will be provided.

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