Mentoring Opportunities at ASTRO 2023
Whether you are a mentor or a mentee, mentoring relationships can have powerful, positive effects in your personal, academic and professional life. ASTRO created Mentor Match to help connect mentors and mentees and through this program we are offering a host of mentoring opportunities at this year’s ASTRO Annual Meeting. We encourage you to plan ahead to take advantage of these opportunities.
Three Mentor/Mentee engagement opportunities:
- ASTRO can help facilitate one-on-one mentoring connections. When registering for the Annual Meeting, registrants will be prompted to indicate if they are interested in mentoring or meeting with a mentor during the Annual Meeting. An ASTRO representative will follow up with those expressing an interest to assist in making the connection.
- A Speed Mentoring event will take place on Tuesday, October 3, 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. in Room 10 on the Upper Level of the San Diego Convention Center. Speed mentoring is a series of short, focused conversations on specific topics. Mentees can rotate to different mentors during the allotted time period. ASTRO will invite mentor volunteers to staff tables to discuss assigned topics.
- If you already have a mentor/mentee, take advantage of being at the Annual Meeting by scheduling an in-person meet up at the Early Career and Mentoring Lounge in room 10 at the San Diego Convention Center.
