I'm an OutCare Health Mentor!
I’m thrilled to say that I’ve been selected and added to the OutCare Health Mentorship directory! Mentors in the OutCare Health make themselves available to offer school, career, or research advice, and guidance on many other life pursuits to LGBTQ+ students and professionals.
All OutCare Health mentors must:
- Provide mentorship for mentees who either identify as LGBTQ+ themselves and/or are interested in LGBTQ+ equity,
- Be affirming to provide appropriate mentorship and guidance,
- Avoid assumptions of sexual orientation, gender identity, and related biases,
- Create welcoming, collaborative mentor-mentee relationships and safe space environments.1
Anyone reading this that would like to be a mentor or mentee, please check out the OutCare Health website for more information or to connect with another mentor in the community!
OutCare, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, is the nation’s first comprehensive resource for LGBTQ+ healthcare offering provider and healthcare resource directories, mentorship, medical education reform, and cultural competency training. OutCare’s most notable endeavor, the OutList, is an online, nationwide directory of healthcare providers who identify as culturally competent in the care of the LGBTQ+ community.
