Mentoring is one of the key components for promoting career success. It has been increasingly recognized as a bilateral exchange between a mentee and a network of mentors, with one of the primary goals being to increase the knowledge, skills and strategic moves of mentees as a core part of preparation for and advancement in current or future professional objectives. Many institutions provide information relevant to pursuing successful career paths through the promotion process. We will discuss the importance of complementing this information with constructing one’s personal mentoring roadmap and also provide guidance in initiating this mapping process. Participants will have the opportunity to review and develop their personal understanding of mentoring and its role in their own careers and professional development, to begin drafting a personal mentoring roadmap, and to expand their appreciation for the potential efficacy of engaging a mentoring roadmap tool in personal career planning and advancement.
This session is for faculty in the tenure system.
