“The need for understanding differences intensifies as our world becomes more culturally complex,” says Fain. “Bridging Differences addresses how to improve mentoring relationships by increasing cultural competency, amplifying authenticity, and learning from differences.”

In the book, the co-authors detail fictional scenarios featuring three pairs of diverse mentors and mentees to illustrate how key concepts can play out in real life. They offer an array of accessible tools and strategies designed to help increase your self-awareness and prepare you to embrace and leverage differences in your mentoring relationships.
