There's many reasons why someone would want to be a mentor - you remember an older student or professor giving you guidance through undergrad, you've learned a lot and want to pass it on, you had a hard time and want to make sure younger students don't have to deal with what you did - but what makes a good mentor? What skills do you need, how do you make the relationship beneficial to both you and the mentee? What if you mess something up? Mentorship can be an exciting and terrifying prospect, but we're here to give you some tips.

We've brought together a panel of experienced LGBTQ+ staff and faculty who participate as mentors in our MaPPS (Mentoring and Personal/Professional Support) program to talk about what they've learned about being a good influence and building trust with a mentee. Afterwards, ask the panelists questions and consider signing up for our GPS (Guidance - Perspective - Support) program, our peer-to-peer mentorship opportunity, and start using those skills today!
