On January 29, The Diversity Speaker Series welcomed Mr. Ryan Scott to RMU. Mr. Scott, the Co-Director of the Black Male Leadership Development Institute, gave a talk entitled “What They See, is What They’ll Be!” The talk was focused on mentorship, and the importance of mentors to help people succeed. Mr. Scott gave a brief overview of his journey and successes, and talked about how influential mentors were in his life. Mr. Scott inspired the crowd to become mentors for other people, while explaining how rewarding of an experience mentorship can be. Students were able to ask Mr. Scott questions about mentorship, and learn different ways to develop a mentoring relationship. Afterwards many students waited to ask Mr. Scott personal question to help them individually learn more about how mentorship could affect their lives or goals. Overall, the event was very successful because students were able to learn from Mr. Scott, and hopefully apply this knowledge to help better themselves.
