The professional development path in science is long and full of obstacles, mainly for women and minorities. Having good mentors to advise us and help to fully develop our skills is essential throughout our whole career. The main goal of this seminar is to highlight the importance of having a good mentoring team and ways to form your own team. Mentoring teams are composed of several mentors of different backgrounds to work on different aspects, such as leadership, public speaking, management, conflict solving. Ruth will also talk about different mentoring models, which are not the traditional mentoring received by your supervisor. Mentoring could come from collaborators, professionals of other fields, peers or even family. In a seminar Ruth will guide us through this fascinating topic and we will discuss about why and how mentoring is important for women and minorities.

Ruth Gotian is the Chief Learning Officer and Assistant Professor of Education in Anesthesiology and former Assistant Dean of Mentoring and Executive Director of the Mentoring Academy at Weill Cornell Medicine. She has been hailed by the journal Nature and Columbia University as an expert in mentorship and leadership development. In 2021, she was selected as one of 30 people worldwide to be named to the Thinkers50 Radar List, dubbed the Oscars of management thinking and is a semi-finalist for the Forbes 50 Over 50 list. In addition to publishing in academic journals, she is a contributor to Forbes and Psychology Today where she writes about ‘optimizing success’.
