Tufts PDA Mentoring Circles

Posted on Updated on

imagesAre you interested in guidance in your academic or industry career progression? Need help managing your work-life balance? Want to build your network?

What is a Mentoring Circle? 

A Mentoring Circle consists of several mentees with STEM, Humanties or Social Science backgrounds swho are committed to meeting monthly to support one another with support, advice, and information. Each circle will be directed by an experienced mentor.

Who will be in my circle? 

The MASS AWIS mentoring committee will review submitted surveys and match you with a circle based on interest, career goals, geography, and other factors.

What will we talk about? Are we just going to sit around and complain?

The mentoring circle is a supportive forum to constructively resolve all issues, but the focus is on career and personal growth. The group decide the details of scheduling and we will provide ideas and articles to help start conversations within your circle. All participants should be willing to both give and get professional and personal support from others in their circle. Mentors will aid in directing conversational topics within the circle and by sharing their knowledge and experience.

Applications due Friday, October 30.
