There is near universal consensus that paying attention to diversity and inclusion is beneficial for student, staff, and faculty engagement and organizational success. Often, organizations employ mentoring programs to effect inclusion, or to help promote diversity within the organization. Rarely, however, do participants in these mentoring initiatives understand how much difference in culture, background and perspective can impact the mentoring relationship or how to leverage those differences to maximize the effectiveness of mentoring. In this session, Lisa Fain, will introduce a model of cultura ... (continued)
