Looking for a mentor? SRI can help!
The SRI Mentorship Program, or Mentor-in-a-Cloud, represents a bridge between senior and junior SRI members and/or researchers. The Mentor-Mentee relationship is designed to foster maximum productivity and commitment to the field of reproductive sciences through encouraging strong collegial relationships, training, support and recognition of accomplishments.
The Mentor-in-a-Cloud event follows a speed dating format in which each participant will be paired up with four potential matches and will have the opportunity to network in-person at the Annual Meeting (~ 15 minute conversations). Schedules for the in-person event are determined based on a first-come, first-serve basis, and final matches are determined by ratings completed by both mentors and mentees.
Mentees obtain advice, receive feedback, expand their skillsets and connect with SRI members to expand their personal networks.
Mentees must be current (paid dues) In-Training members of SRI and can be at any stage of their training.
A mentor is someone who may share career advice, specific knowledge, and/or a professional connection to the Society. Mentors have an important role in this Society, helping cultivate the next generation of scientists and gain personal satisfaction through this unique networking opportunity. SRI welcomes any current, Regular SRI members that have been a member of the Society for a minimum of three years to
volunteer to become a mentor. Past SRI Presidents and those who have received SRI grants are also eligible.
Prior to the Annual Meetings, SRI will begin seeking mentors and mentees who are willing to participate in the in-person Mentor-in-a-Cloud event. If you are interested in participating, please contact the SRI Office, or download the Program Guide to read about the program and requirements.
