Registration for our second annual Spring to Action event is now open! This year, the summit will address mentorship roles and relationships, and how to optimize your experiences in grad school and beyond.
We will discuss how to navigate mentor/mentee dynamics and common road blocks that impede professional relationships. We will also hear about current mentorship opportunities available at local graduate schools and discuss ways to improve or add mentorship programs.
We welcome all affiliates of all genders from our partner schools who are interested in the topic to attend. Come to any part of the event, lunch, snacks, and coffee will be served throughout the day.
Spread the word by sharing our flyer!
