SESSION: Mentoring: Building functional professional relationships

EVENT TYPE: Broader Engagement

TIME: 10:30AM - 12:00PM

SESSION CHAIR: Raquell Holmes

Presenter(s):Raquell Holmes


As our technical and scientific fields increase in diversity, we have the challenge and opportunity to build professional relationships across apparent socio-cultural differences (gender, race, class, sexuality and physical ability). Successful Mentor-Protege, Advisor- Advisee, or Manager-Staff relationships are dynamic and each relationship, despite common characteristics, is unique. Seeing the improvisational nature of such relationships can help us transform awkward, tentative alliances into functional units. In this session, we explore the challenges and opportunities that come with mentoring relationships and highlight the improvisational skills that help build functional, developmental relationships throughout our professional careers.
