Developing a mentorship network that serves the PUI community.

Mentorship networks are a powerful way to support, recruit, and retain people at all points in their educational and professional journey. As the Botanical Society of America is discussing mentorship broadly, we ask what best practices we could put in place to support current and future primarily undergraduate faculty within the PUI Plant Network. As a group, we will discuss papers by seminal plant biologist and mentorship scholar Beronda Montgomery and develop a ‘wish list’ for future faculty mentorship programs. 
We will discuss specifically-What makes a great mentor and a great mentee?
What training should they receive?
What are the benefits and drawbacks to paired vertical mentorship versus cohort mentorship?How do we evaluate the success of a mentorship program?
How do we promote inclusivity in a mentorship program?  
As always, all current and future faculty, graduate students, undergraduate students, and PUI- curious people are invited to our programming. We will also hold our annual sectional business meeting and a mixer during the meeting.
