Mentorship can play an integral role in making a positive difference in someone’s life. But what does it take to be a valuable mentor? And how can one seek mentorship effectively?

In celebration of Black History Month, the BRN Faculty Fellows are answering these questions and more as they discuss their careers in academia and initiatives to provide mentorship to students at the University of Toronto.

The BRN Faculty Fellows are Brice Batomen, an assistant professor at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health; Mireille Norris, a geriatrician at Sunnybrook Hospital and an assistant professor at the Temerty Faculty of Medicine; and Alexander Barnett, an assistant professor in the department of psychology at the Faculty of Arts & Science.

The BRN Faculty Fellows also discuss how the Black Research Network can strengthen academic excellence for the next generation of researchers. One of its four strategic pillars, the BRN aims to enhance the experiences of U of T Black-identified faculty, librarians, post-doctoral fellows, graduate, and undergraduate students by providing mentorship.
