“Making It” in the Academy through Horizontal Mentoring

Pamela VanHaitsma and Steph Ceraso

Abstract: This essay productively engages the exigencies facing early-career feminist academics by developing and detailing an approach to horizontal mentoring. This approach emerged through our own horizontal mentoring relationship, which we situate in relation to feminist scholarship on mentoring within rhetoric and composition as well as other fields. We share seven specific practices for horizontal mentoring.

Keywords: feminist mentors, peer mentoring, horizontal mentoring, professional development
