Graduate students recently participated in Make Possible Mentoring Workshops held at UBC and SFU as part of the SCWIST Brown Bag Series. Gwen Gnazdowsky from One Conversation led a hands-on workshop on how to create successful mentoring relationships including interactive group discussions and networking exercises to build a sense of community and collaboration. There will be more Mentoring Workshops by Gwen later this spring and summer, and we will be sharing her mentoring tips and strategies on the Make Possible website soon. The next WinSETT Leadership Workshop will be April 30th on “How to Navigate the Politics of the Workplace”. Register here.
