Description

The anti-racist mentorship program addresses the urgency of mentoring graduate students of color while addressing struggles with microaggressions and racism. An anti-racist mentorship program utilizes research, pedagogy, and mentorship to raise awareness, make a brave space, and advocate for restorative justice for graduate students. I argue that without calling the elephant by its name, a kind of mentorship that solely relies on the discourse of professionalism does not effectively support scholars of color.

NOTE: Video for this presentation starts at 17:13.
