What is effective mentoring? This talk will summarize the scientific evidence about effective mentoring drawn from extensive social science research. We will move beyond describing mentoring as a program or activity and instead conceptualize mentoring as a web of interpersonal relationships among mentors and mentees, how those relationships are built, and what they can do for both mentors and mentees of various identities and career stages.
