Moving From Mentee to Mentor

Wednesday, November 13, 2019
9:30 am to 11:00 am

Congratulations! You are finishing your PhD or postdoctoral research and hoping to secure a faculty or industry position soon! You feel confident about your research, but you may have questions about building your lab personnel. How do you figure out whom to hire? How do you set up productive, working relationships with your mentees from the beginning? How can you give feedback? In this interactive session, discover how to successfully move from mentee to mentor.

Class size is limited to 25 participants to facilitate small group discussion. Because space is limited, please do not register unless you are sure you can attend.

Speaker: Melissa Segal, LCSW, is a licensed clinical social worker who has provided individual, couples, and family counseling; facilitated a variety of support and educational groups; and implemented professional development and training. She is currently the Senior Business Manager of Duke Neurobiology and serves on the Neurobiology Diversity and Inclusion Committee, the SOM Diversity and Inclusion Council, and the SOM Harassment Taskforce.
