Enhancing Work-Life Integration for Mentees–and Mentors
March 17, 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM EDT
How can mentors best support work-life integration for mentees? This workshop addresses ways that mentors can support mentees in balancing competing priorities of classwork, teaching, research, dissertation work, family, friends, and self-care. Improving mentor work-life integration skills role-models for mentees and may also improve mentor comfort level in addressing issues related to work-life integration with their mentees. In this session, participants will learn to (1) Understand the importance of the many aspects of a mentee’s life to their overall career satisfaction. (2) Initiate and support conversations with mentees on the challenges of addressing work-life integration. (3) Identify targeted areas for achieving better work-life integration as mentors and for mentees.
