The workshop features didactic and interactive sessions on practical tips for mentoring including sessions on the meaning of mentorship, leadership styles, emotional intelligence, distance mentoring, team-based mentoring, individual development plans, funding sources for mentoring efforts, time management, and teaching work-life balance to mentees. The workshop also involves discussion of barriers related to being an early career investigator of diversity (e.g., microaggressions and unconscious bias) and how to be anti-racist as a mentor.
