2022 GORDON MOORE AWARD FOR EXCELLENCE IN MENTORING
The Institute upholds a strong tradition of mentorship to support professional and personal development of faculty and staff at all stages of career development. To celebrate the outstanding Institute members who inspire, support, and catalyze the personal and professional development of colleagues, the Gordon Moore Award for Excellence in Mentoring was established in 2019.
Named for and inspired by Gordon Moore, MD, MPH, the award was created to recognize exceptional mentors from all areas, including staff, research scientists, analysts, fellows, faculty, and individuals in administrative and management roles. Mentors can be recognized for one or more of the following traits:
Goal setting | Developing talent | Coaching and sponsorship | Role modeling | Support |
Feedback and caring | Commitment | Encouraging high expectations | Fostering values of life-long mentoring | Supporting work-life balance
A nomination for excellence in mentoring appreciates an individual who has had a transformative role in the professional or personal development of one or more mentees.
This year, 13 outstanding mentors were nominated by fellows, faculty, and staff. The mentors nominated this year were:
- Jason Block
- Nicole Bornkamp
- Samantha Fournier
- Michael Klompas
- Sharon Lutz
- Julia Marcus
- Vickie Pagliuca
- Dennis Ross-Degnan
- Denise Simon
- Jessica Sturtevant
- Darren Toh
- Anita Wagner
- Hao Yu
The nominations were extraordinary, highlighting the many ways in which staff and faculty in the Institute value and provide inspiration, role modeling, guidance, feedback, career development, and personal support.
We congratulate the awardees on this honor and thank the nominees, nominators, and everyone for their contributions to our culture of mentoring.
