Findings from a recent study indicate that graduate students in the natural sciences benefit significantly from the mentoring activities of more senior students and postdoctoral fellows (Feldon et al, 2019). Such findings suggest that it is vital that all individuals (faculty, researchers, postdoctoral fellows, and graduate students) develop effective mentoring skills. In this session, participants will explore and discuss what mentoring is as well as review and apply several tools that enable an individual to employ an equity-minded approach to the mentoring enterprise.
