Mentoring Academy | Second Session - Addressing Equity and Inclusion

October 22, 2021 - 12:00pm to 2:00pm


This is the second of three sessions in our fall series of the Mentoring Academy. This session will, through interactive case studies, provide an opportunity to discuss best practices in Addressing Equity and Inclusion (Competency #5). 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 three sessions to complete all eight competencies and earn a credential. The Mentoring Academy builds upon the curriculum provided through the National Research Mentoring Network.

  • 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.

Facilitator: Joe Ayoob, Mentoring Faculty Fellow.
