The 6-month program provides graduate student mentees with the opportunity to become closely acquainted with a professional mentor, learn about their field, receive career advice and gain helpful knowledge that will allow the mentees to better transition into the industry post-graduation. Mentees and mentors are matched on the basis of career interest or professional development goals. Registration fee for Mentees (students) is $10.
The program includes:
- A launch event in January 2020
- A combination of facilitated face-to-face meet-ups and self-directed interactions between mentors and mentees through the year.
- Exclusive skill development workshops within the mentorship program and the broader LSCDS community.
- A closing reception in June 2020
