The Role of Role Models: Effective Mentorship in the Physics Department

An Equity, Inclusion, and Cookies (EIC) event

What is mentorship? In what contexts does it occur? What are the ingredients of a constructive and beneficial mentor-mentee relationship? In this event, we will explore the idea of mentorship and discuss these questions in the context of a diverse physics department.

Because mentorship takes many different forms, input from students, staff, postdocs and faculty is essential for a productive discussion. The ideas generated in this discussion will also inform our next event, where we will discuss concrete steps that the department can take toward making mentorship more inclusive.
