P. Gabrielle Foreman (Pennsylvania State University)

What values inspire you and drive your work? How can you develop a professional mission statement tied to those values? How can we shift our ideas about ourselves as scholars, and about mentoring—and re-frame our notions of a singular mentor? This first of two workshops hosted by Watson Professor Foreman is intended specifically for Black, Indigenous, people of color [BIPOC] faculty, staff, and administrators at Syracuse University. A second session for others is March 5.

Space is limited; please submit a request to participate by Feb. 21 and include any requests for accessibility accommodations.
