CGSF: Effective Communication with your Mentor
October 10 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Part 2 of CGSF Lunch & Learn mentorship series. Students are encouraged, but not required, to also attend Finding a Mentor on 9/26. The skills learned in this series build upon each other and students will benefit most if taken as a series.
Effective communication is essential for establishing a strong mentor-mentee relationship. This workshop aims to aid graduate students in Diversity and Student Success in overcoming communication barriers with their academic mentors. Participants will receive clear and assertive communication guidance and strategies to facilitate successful interactions with their mentors.
