Join us for for a lunch keynote, featuring Brad Johnson, Professor of psychology in the Department of Leadership, Ethics and Law at the United States Naval Academy, and a Faculty Associate in the Graduate School of Education at Johns Hopkins University.

Dr. Johnson is also a clinical psychologist and former Lieutenant Commander in the Navy's Medical Service Corps. He is a fellow of the American Psychological Association and recipient of the Johns Hopkins University Teaching Excellence Award. Author of numerous publications and 13 books, his most recent titles include:

  • Athena Rising: How and Why Men Should Mentor Women (2016) Bibliomotion

  • On Being a Mentor: A Guide for Higher Education Faculty (2nd ed., 2015) Routledge

  • The Oxford Handbook of Education and Training in Professional Psychology (2014) Oxford University Press

This practical keynote session draws directly on Dr. Johnson’s and others’ research on mentorship to share ways to develop high-impact mentoring relationships in higher education using evidence-based rules of engagement. Topics include techniques for forming effective mentorships, the interpersonal qualities and behavior strategies of highly-effective mentors and mentees, and key ethical obligations and considerations. There will be a strong focus on using mentorships to nurture an inclusive, diverse campus. This session is dedicated to helping the Georgetown community think in an informed way about the key ingredients to a strong mentoring culture, including structures for increasing both the prevalence and efficacy of mentoring within the university.

Thank you to our supporters, HeForShe Campaign and Georgetown Women's Alliance.
