Emphasizing the perspective of the mentee, this event explores strategies for finding a mentor, establishing the relationship, and being an effective mentee. Participants will learn tools and techniques for directing their own mentor-mentee relationships and maximizing their time with mentors.

By the end of this event, you will know:

  • How to select a mentor
  • How to negotiate and create a mentoring plan
  • How to create and use an IDP
  • The phases of a mentoring relationship
