Session 2 | November 15, 2022 The Role of Mentoring in Women Lead, UF’s Institute for Early Career Scholars
Presented by Lily R. Lewis and Talline Martins at 9:00am via Zoom
Women Lead is a year-long leadership development program for graduate students and postdocs aspiring to leadership roles in any career sector. A collaborative program between the Graduate School and Office of Postdoctoral Affairs, this year-long program was designed around three core areas: career exploration and networking, self-awareness, and personal effectiveness and purpose. Women Lead is structured to help scholars grow their networks through a series of interactive workshops, independent career exploration, small team discussions and peer mentoring moderated by accomplished women leaders, and one-on-one mentoring. The program was offered online using Zoom for large group workshops, to facilitate participation from our university-affiliated scholars across the country. Program content was developed in canvas in collaboration with an instructional designer to ensure accessibility. Scholars were eligible to participate by being nominated by a faculty member, or by self-nominating. Selection criteria included previous leadership experience, commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, diversity, and access, and scholarship. In this session, we will briefly describe the structure of the program, preliminary assessment, with a focus on the peer mentoring and one-on-one mentoring components of the program.
