Resources for Mentors and Mentees

Published on
November 26, 2012

Every long-term mentoring discussion eventually runs a little dry. The Mentor and Mentee are still learning together but their interactions would benefit from some new topics and inspiration. Over the years, I have collected some excellent mentoring resources to recommend. Some resources are particular to mentoring but others will be fascinating to any professional. Here is a small selection:

  • Aimee Mullins: It's not fair having 12 pairs of legs, TED Talk – Prosthetic Aesthetics, 2009, Web Video Run time: about 10 minutes
  • By the Numbers: Statistics about Women and IT. The most compelling statistics on women's participation in IT on a single page, NCWIT - National Center for Women & Information Technology, 2012 (updated annually), Document: 1 page
