Growing Your Mentoring Network in Grad School: Practical Tips and Approaches

Sponsored by

This event is over.

Event Details:

For graduate students, the importance of growing supportive mentoring networks cannot be overstated, especially as grad school can often feel isolating as you are charged to work independently.  This begins with “mentoring up” to proactively engage with your faculty mentor(s), but also creating and cultivating a robust network of additional mentors, mentees, and peers that can help you navigate the complex landscape of grad school.
This workshop will give you practical, easy-to-implement suggestions for identifying your specific needs and potential mentors and developing strategies to grow your mentoring network, including specific suggestions for ‘making the ask’ to potential mentors. You will also get the opportunity to learn from your peer graduate students and share recommendations that have worked for you.
