Equity-Minded Mentoring for Graduate Students

Equity-Minded Mentoring for Graduate Students
TLC Graduate Certificate Program - Winter 2024

Five Tuesdays in Winter at 9:00 - 11:00 am: January 16, January 30, February 13, February 27, and March 12

Are you a graduate student in a STEM or Social Sciences field who is interested in developing mentorship skills to build inclusive, supportive research environments? If so, consider participating in TLC’s Equity-Minded Mentoring for Graduate Students Certificate Program

In this program, you and your colleagues will meet bi-weekly (5 sessions total) during the Winter quarter to explore and practice evidence-based strategies that have been shown to support underrepresented students in research environments, particularly those from racially minoritized groups, including:

  • Establishing and co-creating clear expectations for the mentoring relationship;
  • Communicating effectively and with attention to how different life experiences, identities, and positions of power shape participation in and experiences in STEM and Social Sciences fields;

  • Promoting students’ sense of belonging and academic identities.

In between our bi-weekly meetings, you will have the opportunity to engage with brief readings and draft your own mentoring philosophy. 

Join us if you’d like to be part of a new generation of researchers committed to changing research culture through equity-minded mentoring! Register here between November 13 and December 11 (registration closes at 5:00 pm on the 11th). A waitlist will automatically open up at the same registration link after 25 people have registered. We will contact registrants and waitlisters about your status soon after open registration closes on December 11.
