TEAM Mentor:Mentee Program


This initiative facilitates networking between individuals who can provide experience-based advice, sound boarding, and perspective. The program is available to all NNS members to support their professional advancement. The program is a year-long opportunity to engage with a mentor and/or as a mentor, with the NNS conference as a focal point. Due to the national nature of our organization, our mentor/mentee pool will be from various research institutions and backgrounds.


Mentors and mentees are self-identified as wanting to promote inclusivity in the NNS community. Matches will be based on your responses in the application. TEAM cannot predict the pool of mentors and mentees - and will match to the best of their ability.
