Event description
Learn how to build trust and effectively mentor colleagues from BIPOC or other diverse backgrounds.

About this event

Mentorship is often overlooked as a way to advance IDEA (inclusion, diversity, equity, and accessibility) in our sector. If you are interested in mentoring a colleague, this session will help you do that effectively. The session is for people of any race, ethnicity, or background but will address specific issues that may arise if you are mentoring a BIPOC person or someone from a diverse background. By being a mentor, you can pave the way for people to enter into leadership roles and reach their full potential.

Participants will learn these key components of mentoring. To help a young person of color find their right path: 1) never judge a book by its cover, 2) build trust, 3) measure growth ("watering the bamboo"), and 4) promote vulnerability through artistic expression.

This framework takes into account the importance of recognizing the value of each individual. You will learn to use a holistic approach (listening, believing, and sharing) that allows people to discover the true meaning of self-worth.

Participants are invited to learn, engage, reflect, and collaborate while embracing the notion that helping others reach their full potential is crucial to advancing equity in our sector.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Participants will learn the "iceberg coaching model" concept where it is important to distinguish between how a person presents themselves in the world (part of the iceberg above the water) and their unseen and sometimes unexplored motivations below the waterline.
  2. Understand the importance of talking to someone vs. talking at them.
  3. Obtain knowledge related to the importance of true mentorship.

Who will benefit from this workshop:

This workshop is for people of any race, ethnicity, or background who want to mentor a colleague who is a BIPOC or person from other diverse backgrounds.

About the Trainer: David Watson has Master's degrees in Leadership and Organizational Studies, Educational Administration and Supervision, and a Master's of Arts in secondary teaching. His education and law enforcement background has given him a wealth of personal experience working with and mentoring youth of color. He strongly believes in the importance of having “the right conversation” to break down barriers and motivate others to understand the importance of self-worth, see their potential, and give back to their community. His work personifies the slogan "Teamwork Makes the Dreamwork."
