There exists a background of literature (Shrestha & Davis Jr, 1989; Schlemper & Monk, 2011; Kobayashi et. al, 2014; Solis et. al, 2014; Adams et. al, 2014, Mullings & Mukherjee, 2019) about the necessity of mentorship, especially in making the discipline of geography more representative of the increasingly diverse makeup of geographers, and the perspectives and viewpoints that they bring. Mentorship is a major part of making a more diverse and equitable discipline possible, but what does effective mentorship of diverse geographers look like? What does the next generation of geographers need from more established geographers to thrive within the discipline?
This panel, which is comprised of graduate students, early-career academics, and established faculty members/researchers, will seek to answer these questions, bringing in their own personal experiences to contemplate on what mentorship looks like to them, how they plan to leverage these experiences in order to push for a more open and diverse discipline and contemplate what further steps may need to be taken in order to reach this goal.
