Ever wonder how (or whether) to start conversations about equity and inclusion with your mentees? This presentation will offer practical advice for raising awareness of issues of equity and inclusion, along with tools to help foster conversations within mentoring relationships. These activities are drawn from the “Equity & Inclusion” module of the “Entering Mentoring” curriculum available through the National Research Mentoring Network, and the presentation will also situate this conversation within the context of the broader training opportunities.
