Mentoring Mondays with The American Society for Microbiology

Starting in July, The American Society for Microbiology (ASM) is offering the “how to” guide to better mentoring. Mentoring Mondays is a free professional development webinar series. It blends virtual webinars and an interactive discussion forum for all-encompassing mentor training. The program is specifically designed for research investigators interested in (1) learning more about effective mentoring, (2) establishing beneficial mentoring relationships, and (3) implementing novel mentoring strategies to improve research programs. Because we all recognize the importance of mentoring, ASM has created this program to teach even the most seasoned researchers effective ways to integrate mentoring into your research programs. Both you and your trainees will reap the benefit of an improved mentoring relationship.
