Why are communities of color so underrepresented in the mental health profession? Ulash Thakore-Dunlap addresses one specific solution: Providing mentorship to early-career people of color. She talks openly about her successes and failures in a variety of mentoring relationships.
Mentoring can be especially impactful for developing the careers of members of underrepresented communities: people of color, women, first generation college students, and LGBTQ individuals. This workshop will explore a program providing group mentorship for emerging women of color leaders in mental health care. The group challenged each participant to create and implement goals, brainstorm ideas, and support each other with total honesty, respect and compassion. This workshop will share how to run such a group, lessons learned, and the ways in which mentoring groups support early career women of color leaders.
