2023 Gordon Moore Excellence in Mentoring Awardees Announced
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
This year's Gordon Moore Award for Excellence in Mentoring winners are Nicole Bornkamp and Davene Wright!
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, 15 total mentors were nominated. Congratulations to all!
