Effective mentor relationships have been shown to be a key component in advancing the next generation of researchers. APS, in collaboration with the Center for the Improvement of Mentored Experiences in Research (CIMER), will host a virtual Mentor Training workshop from February 7-10, 2022. The research mentor training component will be offered as four two-hour sessions of interactive virtual training with two highly skilled facilitators.
This highly interactive workshop will be open to 24 women and gender minority graduate students and postdocs who are selected through an application process. Individuals selected to participate in the Mentor Training Workshops will have the opportunity to participate in and take on leadership roles at the AGL Conference.
Topics that will be discussed in the workshops include:
Application deadline: January 24, 2022
CIMER is a leader in STEM mentor training and has trained thousands of facilitators, mentors, and mentees across the country. CIMER’s work is rooted in evidence-based mentor and mentee training methods where trainees learn how to align expectations, cultivate ethical behavior, foster independence, and maintain effective communication.
The activities within AGL are open to individuals who do not identify as cisgender men. We encourage participation of cisgender women, gender non-binary individuals, and transgender individuals.
