All faculty, academic staff, post-docs, librarians, and graduate students who identify as women are cordially invited to participate in the MSU Academic Women’s Forum. The forum was created to provide a safe space to connect, build community, and explore issues relevant to the success, support, and empowerment of academic women at Michigan State University.
Leveraging Connections: Building Your Network Roadmap
Mentoring is one of the key components for promoting career success. It has been increasingly recognized as a bilateral exchange between a mentee and a network of mentors, with one of the primary goals being to increase the knowledge, skills, and strategic moves of mentees in preparation for advancement in current or future professional objectives.
Participants will increase their understanding of the role of mentoring in their own professional development, to begin drafting a mentoring roadmap, and to expand their appreciation for the efficacy of using a mentoring roadmap in their careers.
Presenter: Dr. Beronda Montgomery, MSU Foundation Professor, Academic Advancement Network Research & Scholarship Node Leader
