Upcoming: Mentoring Work Group

Application now closed
Building on conversations heard at AACRAO meetings and responses to AACRAO Career Profile Surveys, this work group will develop best practices for mentors and mentees alike. These practices will support members in their roles at their respective institutions and as members of the AACRAO professions more broadly.

Now is an essential time for AACRAO to provide guidance on the meaning and significance of mentorship in these three areas:
  1. Succession planning: The Career Profile Surveys indicate that those in leadership roles in AACRAO professions plan to retire or change positions in the coming years in large numbers; mentoring plays a critical role in the development of future leaders in our professions.
  2. Member engagement opportunities: Recommendations are needed for AACRAO on best practices that could be implemented and considered in future mentor programming.
  3. Professional development:  Individuals need resources to help them develop mentoring relationships and become excellent mentors and mentees.
