Even the word“values” is difficult to define.2.There are often significant differences between a mentor andmentee in socioeconomic status and/or racial and ethnic back-ground. Training mentors in understanding and respectingtheseand other forms of diversity will benefit the mentor-mentee rela-tionship.3.When mentors understand the ways that a mentee’s personal val-ues might manifest themselves in their relationship, they will bemore able to respond nonjudgmentally to their mentee.4.It is important for facilitators to examine their own values andbiases before leading training sessions on these topics.
