Mentoring the Mentors workshopWe are pleased to announce the APA’s new “Mentoring the Mentors” Workshop Toolkit. The toolkit is a resource funded by a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation that guides philosophy departments and organizations in hosting their own “Mentoring the Mentors” workshop. The workshop is a training program for mentors of undergraduate students from underrepresented groups in philosophy.

The workshop provides resources and discussion for graduate students and faculty members who find themselves in the position of mentor but want more guidance and understanding of the unique challenges that underrepresented students in philosophy face.

The workshop toolkit is adaptable to the needs of the host department or organization, and includes a sample schedule, tips on how to build a workshop and invite panelists, discussion scenarios, lists of resources, and much more.

The “Mentoring the Mentors” Workshop Toolkit is available on the APA’s Diversity Institute Resources page, along with other useful links and documents related to diversity institutes. For questions related to the workshop toolkit and past or future iterations of the “Mentoring the Mentors” workshop, please contact Lucy Pawliczek.
