Speech-language pathologists and audiologists’ roles and responsibilities evolve from pre-service through many stages along their career path. Supervisors and mentors play influential roles in shaping quality professionals and services. They nurture, guide, and influence their supervisees and mentees. They ensure compliance, share knowledge, present solutions, and foster professional success and development.  This interactive session clarifies the difference between supervision and mentoring with emphasis placed on the roles and responsibilities of supervisor/supervisee and mentor/mentee. Examples of model supervision and mentoring programs for pre-service, early career, professional leadership, and building expertise are shared. The session is very interactive. Participants engage in lively conversation, share their stories, and obtain practical tools and strategies. Each prepares a personalized action plan.
