FIND A MENTOR

Mentoring Program

The EMI Dynamics committee has kicked off a mentoring program for a pilot 1 year period. Interested mentors and mentees are invited to email the Committee Chair, Eleni Chatzi, to participate in the program.

The purpose of the program is to support young academics with possible questions or concerns regarding career evolution, as well as work/life balance, by pairing them with more experienced members of the committee for some one to one mentoring sessions. These sessions are envisioned as informal relaxed discussions. Please see the list of mentors below.
