Join us to celebrate the vibrant mentoring culture at MGH! This event will recognize recipients of 2021 departmental, MGH-wide, and Harvard mentoring awards. In particular, the winners of the 2021 CFD Excellence in Mentoring Awards will be announced.
The celebration includes a keynote presentation “Lateral Mentoring™ in a Hierarchical Environment: Mentoring at Every Stage in Your Career” by Deborah Heiser, PhD, Founder and CEO of The Mentor Project, Founder of I.M.AGE.
Many people think of mentoring as hierarchical - a mentee is seeking guidance from someone directly above (and in the same department). However, the most effective mentorship is lateral, and many people are already doing it without even knowing it! By learning the different ways we can engage in mentoring, we can gain benefits that far exceed our expectations. And, we can mentor at any stage of our career, including in retirement!
