We introduce to you Mentoring Mondays!  Every Monday, we will be highlighting a resource from the Mentoring Toolkit or sharing information on mentoring.  We think it's a great way to start the week. We hope you agree. Starting next week, we will only send these weekly Mentoring Monday emails to subscribers who have selected "Mentorship" as an area of interest on their profile. To verify, please click on Update Profile/Email Address at the very bottom of this email.  Starting next week, if you do not have "Mentorship" selected as an area of interest on your subscription profile with us, you will not receive the Mentoring Mondays weekly email.  
Mentoring Relationship

Anthony Aramburo
View an ASL presentation by Anthony Aramburo, who discusses the mentoring relationship and how it works within the black and African American communities. He discusses the importance of having black and African American's enter the interpreting profession and how culture, oppression within the community, and Institutional Racism can affect their decision in becoming an interpreter. He also argues that when selecting a mentor/mentee, it is important to take age into consideration because of cultural respect.
Take the conversation further and join the LinkedIn Group Sign Language Interpreting Mentors.   There, you can connect with other professionals, mentors and mentees and discuss this and other topics in mentoring.
