Maggie Portis will lead an interactive session that conceptually expands mentoring by identifying and discussing unexpected arenas for future mentoring. Geared towards mid- and late- career librarians whose mentoring needs and relationships continue to shift, this session will kick off with Heather Slania, the mentoring committee chair, who will discuss the first ten and the next ten years of ARLIS/NA mentoring. A lightning round of speakers will then highlight areas for facilitated discussions. Discussion topics will include: identifying mentors, being a mentor and a mentee at once, arranging mentoring opportunities, keeping expectations real, solving problem-based mentoring, and navigating sticky situations. Maggie will close with a discussion on the Imposter Syndrome and how it can impede mentoring. This will lead to the final activity where participants share one thing at which they excel with someone new.
