The AAEA Early Career Development Committee is pleased to announce that it is in the process of developing the 2014-2015 AAEA Mentoring Program. This is an excellent opportunity for members to enhance their careers through the development of a dynamic mentoring partnership. The Mentor Application deadline has been extended to April 8, 2014. We are no longer accepting applications for mentees.
As a volunteer mentor, you have the opportunity to share your knowledge,
your experience, and your insights with the next generation of leaders
working in applied economics and related fields. Mentors should have at
least seven years of experience/tenure in their current profession and
demonstrated excellence in their career.
The 12 month commitment begins with a comprehensive matching process.
Once partnerships are formed, a formal Dynamic Mentoring Connections
training will take place at the Joint Annual Meeting in Minneapolis, MN
on July 25-26, 2014 for all matched participants. While the program
encourages mentoring pairs to commit to a minimum of two meetings
(email, phone, etc.) per month devoted to mentoring activities, mentor
pairs will determine the length and frequency of the mentoring meetings.
A mid-year energizer webinar and year-end celebration will also be
provided as part of the program. Additionally, all program participants
will be asked to complete program evaluations at mid, end, and 6 months
after program completion.
