Asking for Advice: Actual vs Predicted Impressions

I’m particularly interested in how mentorship relationships form in the workplace and academic settings, and what may precede or facilitate their development. One essential component of a mentor-mentee relationship is the ability to feel comfortable asking for advice. This summer I will begin data collection on a project examining gender differences in how people think they think they will be perceived when they ask a superior for advice, versus how they are actually perceived.

Message to Sponsor

I am so grateful for this award because it allows me to stay in Berkeley this summer to continue gaining valuable research experience and developing my skills in a field that I love and will soon pursue a career in. Thank you so much for your generosity and this amazing opportunity!
