Deadline Approaching: Inaugural HCM Mentoring Program

  • 1.  Deadline Approaching: Inaugural HCM Mentoring Program

    Posted 07-08-2021 08:13
    Dear Members of the HCM Division,

    Today's virtual environment has made it particularly difficult for doctoral students and early careerists to interact with colleagues in the HCM field to build connections and exchange ideas. To mitigate this obstacle, the leadership of the HCM division is launching the HCM Mentoring Program. The goal of this program is to create opportunities to communicate and exchange thoughts with other scholars from other schools and countries. This program will match mentees with a mentor based on shared research interests and professional advancement.

    If you are interested in signing-up as a mentee, complete the following survey by Friday, July 9th: https://forms.office.com/r/e6u7BjECEd

    For this program to succeed we need faculty from the HCM Division to volunteer to participate as mentors and serve as a source of information, guidance, and community-building. We anticipate that mentors will be matched with 1-2 mentees. Sign up as a mentor by completing the following survey by Friday, July 9thhttps://forms.office.com/r/4xbN8uzz8H

    Mentees and mentors will be matched prior to the start of the 2021 AOM Annual Meeting. We suggest that mentors connect with mentees for a minimum of two 30-minute sessions via video or phone over the next academic year. The first of these sessions ought to occur either:
    1. During one of AOM scheduled Senior Scholar Coffee Chats: Friday, July 30 from 1:30 - 3:00 pm ET; or Saturday, July 31 from 12:30-2:30 pm ET. This is a designated Zoom space where mentees and mentors can join and enter their own breakout room; or
    2. At a time that is mutually convenient to both of your schedules.

    Around mid-July, an email will be sent introducing mentees to their mentors. It is our hope that this program creates a much-needed space for HCM members to build meaningful connections around the topic areas that interest them the most.

    Should you have any questions, please email J'Aime Jennings jaime.jennings@louisville.edu and Nick Edwardson nedwardson@unm.edu.
