AGENDA

9:30-10 AM – Registration 

10-10:20 AM – Welcome

Brief introduction of mentors

Introduction of keynote speaker

Keynote speaker: Ann Schlenker, Director for Transportation Research, Argonne 

10:20-11:45 AM – Speed mentoring rotations

Mentees split into groups

5-7 groups, 1 mentor and up to 4 mentees per group, TBD based on participants 

Mentor-to-mentee Q&A (5-10 minutes) with brief introductions

Mentors open by introducing themselves, followed by quick mentee introductions. Mentors can ask any questions they may have about the new generation workforce. 

Mentee-to-mentor Q&A (5-10 minutes)

Leaders start by making a statement about a topic suggested below for stimulating conversation (choose any one topic per rotation). Topics can include the following: 

- How does your institution provide support for mentorship between different career levels?

- Are there any ways that institutions could further help to establish a more active mentoring climate (creating networking resources, groups, etc)?

- What advice do you have on the number of mentors one should have and the appropriate amount of contact to maintain with them?

- How has mentorship helped you advance your career?

- Where are some good resources for finding and selecting mentors, and how can you identify an appropriate mentor?

- How does one effectively communicate and align expectations in a mentorship relationship?

Mentees rotate to different tables

Rotating: A session moderator will keep time and allow time for groups to transition, by asking mentees to get up and change tables. This is to ensure that everyone gets to talk to all the mentors with different topics each time. Length of time for each rotation depends on the number of participants. 

11:45 AM-12:45 PM – Closing: lunch with additional networking
