Mentoring Up for Postdocs

Monday, July 13 and Tuesday, July 14, 2020
(detailed agenda below)
Online via Zoom (links sent upon registration)

 

Succeeding in research is facilitated by helpful mentors. But this doesn’t mean passively following your mentors – you must proactively “mentor up” as you engage with your mentors. In this workshop, you will learn how to maximize your relationship with your mentor and to develop and use a Mentoring Action Plan (MAP) to navigate mentoring relationships to meet your goals.

Attendance is limited to 20 postdocs.
