UW-Madison's Minero conducting workshop for mentors, mentoring professionals

April 08, 2016

UW-Madison’s Laura Minero will be conducting a workshop for mentors and mentoring professions through the University of Wisconsin-Parkside on Friday, April 29, at 11 a.m.

Minero is a doctoral student in the School of Education’s Department of Counseling Psychology.

The workshop is titled, "Fostering Cultural and Relational Competency for Mentors and Mentoring Professionals."

It will explore aspects of developing cultural competency and relational skills that are crucial to mentor/mentee relationships. Minero will share from her experiences as a mentor and engage attendees in conversation and role-play activities.

Originally from Mexico, Minero was raised in a small, rural town in the farming capitol of California, and is passionate about working with marginalized communities who may experience discrimination and oppression resulting in high levels of minority stress.

In her five years of mentoring experience, she has mentored over 45 first-generation high school and college students.
