Mentee-Mentor Relationships as a Career Booster & Networking

Community Discussion
Diversity Abroad hosts an annual series of virtual community discussions for professionals interested in issues of access, inclusion, and diversity in education abroad and international student and scholar services.

November 2023 Community Discussion Webinar

November 30 at 1:00PM ET

In any field, being part of a mentee-mentor relationship can provide support, community, and a space to explore your future goals and career. Join us as we explore the ins and outs of mentee-mentor relationships in the field of international education. Each of our panelists have experience as a mentee or mentor and are eager to share more about their experience as well as tips on how to navigate this type of relationship, explain what a mentorship relationship is, and how to take advantage of being part of a mentorship as you navigate your career.

Note (engagement level): This community discussion will include discussion from our panelists and a chance for deeper engagement with participants through breakout sessions.
