Identity Conscious Supervision: Mentoring and Managing Across Identities

PC 05

Student affairs professionals often supervise in their career, but rarely receive training around supervision and management. Professional development focuses on skill building in functional areas yet often ignores lived experiences of bias and hostility in the workplace that prevent learning and growth. This session advocates for an original approach by presenting nine core strategies of identity-conscious supervision practice, including both traditional and innovative approaches.
