In early August, ALAO mentor and mentee matches were communicated and introduced for the upcoming academic year. We are currently working to arrange for lunch tables at the ALAO conference in case participants would like to meet up there. We’re also open to expanding the mentoring discussion by answering member questions in the ALAO Newsletter if there’s interest. This could be an informal way to tap into the collective wisdom of the hive. For questions or suggestions regarding the mentoring program please contact Co-chairs, Heidi Beke-Harrigan and Melissa Bauer.
