The Centre provides a bespoke mentoring scheme for postgraduate researchers of colour at the University of Sheffield.
Postgraduate researchers will have the opportunity to discuss questions and concerns around the postgraduate programme, career development, institutional racism, and/or racial justice work, with those who have valuable expertise to share.
The scheme works as follows:
- Each PGR will be paired with a staff member of colour
- Both mentors and mentees will attend a mandatory training session to help them make the most of the mentoring experience.
- Mentors and mentees will meet on a monthly basis over a period of 7 months
- Training takes place in October and November 2023. Mentoring begins in January 2024.
