Mentoring seems to be a favourite topic to me. In livestream 5, I talked about Mentoring to diversity. A mentor needs to become a multicultural person before he or she can mentor people with diversity. Here, people of diversity means gender differences, ethnicity, disability, religious background, mental capability, cultural background. Alterity theory characterised by seeing other people as strange. Anything features or characteristic that are different to their own identities are termed as strange.
What is mentoring? A right mentor is always fruitful and enhance growth for the mentee by providing encouragement and positive feedback. Mentoring in a diverse society requires skills. Mentor must be sensitive, knowledgeable and be willing to listen when prompt to answers questions. Mentor effective or not effective needs evaluation, research and personality assessment.
