Room 241, Vanderbilt Kennedy Center

Sheryl Rimrodt-Frierson, M.D., Assistant Professor of Pediatrics, Division of Developmental Medicine, and Faculty Clinic Director, Vanderbilt Kennedy Center Learning Assessment Clinic, will facilitate a group discussion on the topic of "Ethical Considerations of Mentoring Through Differences." The mentoring relationship can be an essential element in increasing the likelihood of career success. This candid discussion will explore ethical considerations inherent in the mentoring relationship, especially as they pertain to differences and similarities in mentor/mentee “identity” (race, ethnicity, disability, gender, age, etc…).
