In this workshop, participants will analyze their perceptions of research mentoring relationships, learn about effective mentoring structures and strategies, and practice successful techniques. They will learn about key components of mentoring, how to avoid the pitfalls that can derail mentoring relationships, and have the opportunity to design a mentoring plan. In the process of developing our own skills and programs, we contribute to the development of a culture of mentoring that will support young scientists from all backgrounds and allow them to in turn be supportive mentors for their students.
