About this session

Professionals are overcommitted both at home and at work. And feeling busy doesn’t help stress. When professionals try to take tasks off their plate, mentorship may be a first to go. Understandably, this relationship and commitment is mostly unpaid, uncompensated, and underrecognized work. In this discussion, we offer a reframe of the conversation on mentorship. We wish mentorship to gain the attention it deserves. We explore how to make mentorship more efficient while enhancing meaning and connection.

Join this conversation moderated by Jenny Rudolph, PhD on how to sustain both the mentoring process and the mentors themselves. The presentation will be followed by an interactive Q&A where the audience can interact with the speakers.

Learning Objectives

  • Discuss the value and purpose of mentorship
  • Explore the concept of fuel-efficient mentoring, which benefits mentees, growing their confidence and their network, while conserving the energy of the mentor.
