Mentorship Groups

To support the primary mentor/mentee model, the Department is further supporting career development and wellness through group communities.

  • All faculty (junior or senior) are welcome to register for groups on a rolling basis
  • Group members can attend as many / as few sessions as their availability allows
  • The intention for the mentorship groups is that they self-evolve and identify their own desired group structure, areas of interest and needs

This mentorship group is focused on the needs of faculty who identify as racialized women. This initiative is meant to supplement the broader mentorship group for women and underrepresented genders, UPWURD. Individuals who identify as racialized women are welcomed and encouraged to attend both the larger women's mentorship group, and this smaller group, if interested.

Next session: TBC

The Mentorship Group for our Status-Only (eg. PhD and other non-MD) faculty will offer a community of practice to support career development needs.

This mentorship group series has been planned based on input from our faculty mentorship survey and the EDI Promotions Workshop held in Spring 2021. We welcome gender and sexually diverse faculty of underrepresented genders to participate, including cis-women, trans women, trans men, non-binary people and those who are otherwise marginalized.
