This seminar is the third and final session in a 3-part series, run through UC Davis' Professors for the Future pogram, that is aimed at providing graduate students and postdocs with inclusive mentorship skills. During this last session, we will discuss strategies by which we can evaluate our progress as mentors and develop an inclusive mentoring philosophy. Also, we will discuss biases and assumptions, and how they influce mentor/mentee relationships. We will also be joined by Elizabeth Boylan, from the LGBTQIA Resource Center, to discuss resources available to LGBTQIA mentees and how we, as mentors, can provide any necessary support.
