ln this talk, I will address some of the qualities of a good mentor. I will first talk about my experiences with some of my previous mentors. While it is beneficial to talk about mentoring with other faculty members, it is also important to hear from mentees about their experiences. As a mentor, we have to take initiative, be compassionate and understand the mentee's needs. I will highlight more of these qualities to be a good mentor and the impact they can have on the mentee's life both academically and personally.
