CISTAR is committed to excellence in mentoring, recognizing the crucial role of mentors in nurturing the next generation of engineering leaders. Our mentorship programs pair students in our summer programs with undergraduate and graduate fellows, as well as with faculty and industry professionals, to foster diverse and dynamic learning environments. We emphasize the development of inclusive leadership skills through targeted workshops and training sessions, focusing on cultural self-awareness, empathy, and inclusive communication among others. Our programs also include opportunities for both being mentored and acting as mentors, enhancing participants' skills in detecting and dismantling bias, and mentoring inclusively. Additionally, we offer personalized cultural coaching to further refine mentoring and leadership capabilities, ensuring continuous improvement through practical application.
