The Role of the Funder in Providing Mentoring Experiences for Grantees [HRA Members Meeting, Fall 2019]

During this session, we will explore how funders can provide support for mentoring within their programs as a part of workforce development. We will review a summary of current mentoring practices by HRA members. This will be followed by a talk from Dr. Chris Pfund from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Dr. Pfund will discuss the national landscape of mentoring in STEM and provide resources that funders can use to support grantees. This main session will be followed by a breakout session where Dr. Pfund will lead HRA member organizations through the development of an implementation plan where they identify resources that best fit with their program needs and structure.
