This virtual workshop is designed to start a new type of discussion about mentoring by describing the common problems that pre-tenure and post-tenure faculty members experience and why traditional mentoring programs fail to meet those needs. We propose an alternative framework for mentoring that focuses on needs assessment and shifts the idea of mentoring from a relationship between two faculty members towards building a broad network of support, community and accountability. The virtual workshop concludes with a presentation of best practices in mentoring pre-tenure, under-represented and mid-career faculty. This workshop is for full-time faculty.
