Talk Description

Mentoring of students in higher education often centers students’ academic and career development without a sufficient power analysis to understand how structural issues and social identities shape the mentoring relationship itself. In this talk, Anneliese Singh will apply sociocultural and critical race theories to mentoring, guiding participants through a deconstruction of the ideas and beliefs that shape our understandings of mentoring and moving toward an analysis of the structural forces that inform mentoring relationships, all in service of cultivating a more just and power-conscious mentoring practice. Participants will learn power-conscious mentoring strategies that can be implemented across disciplinary areas to support undergraduate and graduate students’ personal, professional, and academic thriving. Anneliese will intersperse breakout rooms and discussion prompts throughout the talk, offering participants an active space to reflect and make connections to their own mentoring practice with students.
