Mentor Support Program for Conference Scholars
AusACPDM is pleased to offer a mentoring program for AusACPDM conference scholarship recipients. As part of this program conference scholars have been matched with a mentor. Conference mentors will meet with their mentee by e-mail prior to the conference and then on the first day of the conference week. Mentors will be available during the conference to provide guidance and support to their mentee in terms of networking, introductions to key researchers in their field of expertise, assistance in identifying professional development opportunities during and beyond the conference and to discuss their career plans. Mentors and mentees will also attend the International Affairs lunch together. This program is designed to support scholarship recipients to get the most from their conference experience. Whilst there is no expectation of an on-going mentor commitment, if both parties wish to continue this relationship beyond the conference week they are welcome to do so.
A number of Academy members are generously volunteering their time as mentors for this program. Profiles of each mentor can be viewed in this AusACPDM mentor booklet
