These MDW training modules provide an overview of mentorship, emphasizing the mutual learning opportunities for both the mentor and the mentee, and provide effective mentorship strategies and approaches, with a focus on broadening participation in research. Workshop participants will receive tools and resources for use in their own mentorship practice.  

Mentors of every level will find value in participating and participation is open to faculty in ALL fields. Workshop is free and includes lunch.
