1. Identify how cultural beliefs, worldviews, and identities influence mentoring practices.

2. Recognize how cultural diversity can impact research mentoring relationships.

3. Acknowledge the impact of conscious and unconscious assumptions, privilege, stereotype threat, and biases in the mentor-mentee relationship.

4. Use culturally responsive mentoring principles as a guide in talking about cultural diversity matters with mentees.

5. Apply evidence-based strategies to reduce and counteract the impact of biases, stereotype threat, and privilege to foster trusting, culturally responsive mentoring relationships.
