Over the past few weeks, some of our Equity Matters content has featured posts exploring the issues behind mentoring in the academy, including a podcast from Minister Faust and pieces about mentoring within one's discipline and an unconventional mentoring relationship. Along with a post setting out the discussion, these posts culminated in 'Much Ado about Mentoring,' a plenary session at the Federation's annual meeting of the General Assembly. This plenary featured a range of academics who spoke to their own encounters with mentoring, as well as the underlying philosophies.
The full podcast of the plenary is now available - listen as Adelle Blackett (McGill University), Larry Chartrand (University of Ottawa) and James Deaville (Carleton University) present their thoughts in this session moderated by Malinda Smith, VP Equity Issues.
