Members of the American Astronomical Society (AAS) who mentor university students in research are invited to use a new research-backed toolkit designed to help mentors and mentees develop equity-minded mentoring relationships. Mentoring relationships are critical to scholarly identity development and a sense of belonging for graduate students, but the benefits of mentoring can often vary in inequitable ways across social identities such as race, class, and gender.

This resource was produced by the Research Hub of the Inclusive Graduate Education Network, of which the AAS is a partner society. The toolkit is the result of a Research Acceleratory Award and was developed with and for STEMM graduate students. While the Equity-Minded Mentoring Toolkit was initially designed to support STEMM graduate students (as both mentees and mentors), it is applicable to mentoring relationships across all levels of postsecondary education.
