As part of the Society’s desire to involve and further support its In Training Members, this program matches a mid-or-senior-career member of SRI with an In Training Member. Through this program, Mentors will gain personal satisfaction, growth within the field and Society, and networking opportunities. Mentees will be able to obtain advice, feedback, and an expanded base of skills, knowledge, and networking opportunities. The Mentor-Mentee relationship is designed to foster maximum productivity and commitment to the field of women’s health. While we ask that the Mentor-Mentee relationship be maintained for three years, we strongly hope and encourage the relationship to continue indefinitely. More information coming soon!
