2020 SEASR Speed Mentoring Session

The Speed Mentoring Session at the 2019 Annual Meeting was such a big success we are bringing it back for the 2020 meeting!!  Based on “Speed Dating”, the session will allow trainees, early career faculty/staff and core managers to meet multiple mentors in an informal and low-pressure atmosphere in a very short period of time.  This will be a chance for participants to talk to a broad range of people, network, and identify potential partnerships. 

Dr. Nawal Boukli from UCC will be returning to lead the session again!!  The participants will be provided with a “delegate sheet” where they can indicate if they are interested as participating as a mentor or mentee. Each round of speed mentoring will be 10 minutes long and Dr. Boukli will provided a list of sample questions to guarantee a productive, lively and enthusiastic session!
