Topics include techniques for forming effective mentorships, the interpersonal qualities and behavior strategies of highly-effective mentors and mentees, and key ethical obligations and considerations. There is a strong focus on using mentorships to nurture an inclusive, diverse campus. This session is dedicated to helping the Georgetown community think in an informed way about the key ingredients to a strong mentoring culture, including structures for increasing both the prevalence and efficacy of mentoring within the university.
