Mentoring Up (Mentee Training) for Graduate Students & Postdoctoral Scholars
Mentoring is collaborative. Ideally, mentees and mentors engage as partners through reciprocal activities such as planning, acting, reflecting, questioning, and problem-solving. Successful mentoring relationships are those in which mentees reach the individual milestones that allow them to progress to the next stage along the trajectory for a sustainable career.
Mentee success is defined as mentees having gained…
- Personal and professional competencies necessary to define their research goals.
- Experience for that career.
- The ability and opportunity to progress toward that chosen career goal.
The content of each session in this curriculum is designed to address some of the challenges and concerns that mentees might encounter throughout their career. In this mentoring up series, mentees will develop the knowledge and skills to proactively and effectively address these challenges and navigate their mentoring relationships and career progression.
