      Methods for Meaningful Mentorship

      METHODS FOR MEANINGFUL MENTORSHIP Facilitator: Sasha Massey,  Assistant Director, NYU Leadership Initiative Between the 60,000 students and 12,000 faculty and staff, deciding who to go to for advice about classes, life, career, and prioritizing opportunities is no easy task. Having  the right mentors to offer guidance is an invaluable resource as you find your path here at NYU and beyond. While it may seem intimidating, confusing or awkward, college campuses are chockfull of potential mentors who want to invest in your growth. So, what exactly is mentoring and where do you start? How can you seek out, build, and cultivate meaningful relationships? The first step is self-knowledge. To enlist the support of others, you need to know what type of advice you are seeking. With this foundation, you can assess how well your current network is serving your needs, and develop an action plan to strengthen it. You will leave this workshop with a better understanding of effective mentoring relationships and with tangible next steps on how to build a supportive network in a field or community that matters to you. *This event is part of the Lunch & Lead series. For a full schedule of all events in the series, please visit **Refreshments will be served on a first come first serve basis. *** For any questions about accessibility or to request accommodations, please contact Jasmin Nazarian at or 212.992.6073.

Sasha is passionate about creating pipelines for traditionally underserved communities through education and leadership development.  Growing up in the halls of her mother’s Montessori school, Sasha was exposed to the transformative power of education early on. Through her own education and teaching experiences, she has learned that students achieve the highest when their existing skills are seen, affirmed and nourished. It was this belief that brought her to the NYU Leadership Initiative, where she helps students discover and develop their superpowers. In her role as Assistant Director, Sasha manages the NYU Leadership Initiative Mentoring Groups, a cohort-based program for undergraduate students early in their NYU careers. Through intensive skill-building workshops and one-on-one mentoring, Sasha works to help her students gain a greater understanding of who they are, engage deeply in activities that matter to them and build meaningful relationships. She also supports NYU's Social Sector Leadership Diversity Fellowship, which equips graduate students of color with the skills, knowledge, and networks needed to take up leadership roles in organizations across the social sector. In addition to her work at the NYU Leadership Initiative, Sasha is a Math Instructor for Sponsors for Educational Opportunity (SEO), empowering the confidence and capacities of NYC high school students to get to and through the nation’s top colleges. Sasha holds a Master’s of Public Administration from NYU’s Robert F. Wagner School of Public Service, specializing in nonprofit management, and a BA in International Relations and Political Science from the University of Calgary.
