Effective mentorship is a key factor for success in the academic environment, but how to mentor in an effective and inclusive way is typically not part of academic training. In this workshop, participants will explore how to mentor with authentic connection and compassion. Participants will be guided in mindfulness, listening, and reflection practices that will facilitate an understanding of functional mentoring relationships and how to apply this knowledge in their individual contexts.
