MENTORING@LBNL is a new initiative driven by a cross-divisional and cross-functional group of passionate advocates for mentorship to pilot impactful lab-wide events and resources related to mentoring. This initiative is sponsored by the Career Pathways Office and the IDEA Office.

Extensive studies and field research have found that mentoring in different structured and unstructured forms, drive greater retention and belonging for all employees, and particularly employees from underrepresented groups. Additionally, hybrid work has opened the possibility of expanding networks for career advancement. 

MENTORING@LBNL piloted a Just-in-Time (JIT) Mentoring event in November 2022, and is now adapting a DOE-developed program called Entering Mentoring to upskill aspiring mentors on best-practices beginning in early 2023.  See feedback from participants here.
