The Gordon Moore Excellence in Mentoring Award
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 in all roles in the department, including staff, research scientists, analysts, fellows, faculty, and individuals in administrative and management roles.
To Dr. Moore, mentoring is a two-way street. Having served as both lifelong mentee and mentor, he has found that when mentoring works, both parties are deeply affected and rewarded. Among numerous other recognition for his career of mentorship, he received the Harvard Medical School William Silen Lifetime Achievement in Mentoring Award in 2020.
A nomination for the Gordon Moore Excellence in Mentoring Award appreciates an individual who has had a transformative role in the professional or personal development of one or more mentees. Exceptional mentors may excel in:
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
