Build Culturally Competent Mentoring Programs with Help from MENTOR

Cultural competence is an important topic related to mentoring! MENTOR: The National Mentoring Partnership hosted a webinar event entitled Cultural and Class Conflict in Mentoring Matches: Strategies for Building the Culturally Competent Mentoring Organization and Professional to help give Clubs new strategies to build competence around culture!

The Cultural and Class Conflict in Mentoring Matches webinar provided many strategies worth exploring, and discussed the idea that “different isn’t [a] deficient; it’s just different!” The sometimes uncomfortable subject of challenges around race, class, and culture was broken down into easy-to-understand, thoughtful sections with take-away ideas that can easily be integrated into Club mentoring programs everywhere!

Take a look at these five key strategies to see what could work best in your Club!
