Mentoring is frequently thought of as a relationship or set of relationships leading to development of an individual or individuals being mentored. These relationships occur in an ecosystem, and yet we infrequently discuss the holistic nature of the development and cultivation of mentoring ecosystems. Dr. Montgomery will discuss the composition, responsibilities, and some outcomes anticipated from focusing on equitable mentoring ecosystems. Click here to learn more about Dr. Montgomery.
