Join us for a flash mentoring event! Like speed dating, flash mentoring is meant to be quick and to the point, requiring concise and targeted questions and answers from both mentors and mentees. Speaking with our mentors will give you insight into what it takes to succeed in international development and mentors will answer questions you have about your own career path.
Please note that this event has very limited space and will likely fill up quickly. If you would like to participate, we encourage you to register ASAP. Registration does not guarantee a spot until you receive a confirmation email and we have received payment. You may be added to a Waitlist and will be contacted ONLY if there is an opening.
During this event, you will have the opportunity to meet one-on-one with mentors that include SID-W Board Members, and Workgroup and Network Co-Chairs. The list of mentors appears below. Each participant will have a chance to meet with 4 different mentors for 12-15 minutes during an hour-long session.
Participants will have the ability to choose which mentors they want to meet. Details on how to select your mentors will be shared on Friday, January 21st. Selection will be on a first-come-first-serve basis, and we can't guarantee you will get your first choice. However, all our mentors are terrific people with fantastic backgrounds and knowledge and experience to share so we can guarantee a valuable and productive time.
Ticket Price: $15 for Members and $30 for Non-Members (Interested in joining? Learn more here.)
We hope you'll join us! Can't make the date? We hope this will be just the first of several mentoring sessions over the course of the year so stay in touch to learn of future opportunities.
