Anti-Bias & Microaggression Workshop

Since its launch in 1999, Massey College’s mentorship program, Meeting of Minds, has matched almost 1000 Junior Fellows with senior members of the Massey community creating valuable, mutually beneficial relationships for both mentors and mentees. The Meeting of Minds program fosters joint participation in Massey activities and provides structured opportunities for collaboration to realize the College’s aim to nurture learning and serve the public good.
In order to enrich the experience of both mentors and mentees, the Meeting of Minds program features several types of mentorship experiences:
One-on-one: Mentor and mentee, matched by the program administrator, meet on a regular basis (2 hours/month) either in-person or virtually, based on their needs and comfort level.
Group mentoring: Meetings of 1 or 2 mentors meet with a group of up to 4 mentees to discuss topics of mutual interest.
Group programming: Mentees and mentors are invited to various activities that range from leadership development, to academic preparation, to social networking.
Group mentoring and group programming activities will be developed in partnership with the Science@Massey program and Chair Barbara Sherwood Lollar (firstname.lastname@example.org).
