The National Research Center on Hispanic Children & Families and the SRCD Latinx Caucus are hosting a mentoring and networking event, “Planning Your Career: Getting the Inside Scoop,” on Friday, March 24, 2023, from 3:30-5:00 PM.
Learn about strategies for advancing your career while enjoying some ice cream with your peers and leaders in the field. The event is designed to facilitate relationships between mentees (students & new professionals) and mentors (leaders in the field) studying Hispanic populations and/or racial and ethnic equity. Mentors and mentees will be assigned groups based on topical interest and will have ample opportunity to speak with both their peers and mentors. Discussions will be informal, and topics may include those related to studying Hispanic populations, grant writing and fundraising, and career development more broadly (e.g., applying for academic and non-academic jobs, productivity in graduate school).
Space is limited and pre-registration is required. To participate as a mentor or mentee, and to indicate your topic preference, please fill out this form by March 15. Priority will be given to Latinx Caucus members and those whose research focuses on Latinx populations. As the event approaches, registrants will be notified of their registration status.
