Mentor Program

We are happy to offer a Goldschmidt mentoring program in Yokohama. Designed for novice conference attendees, students, and early career scientists, mentees will be matched one-on-one with an experienced scientist to help them navigate the conference. All applications to join the program should be made by April 26th 2016(the early registration deadline).

Mentors should be able to do the following:

  • Contact your mentee at least one week before the meeting
  • Discuss any objectives of the meeting, for example: sharing science, networking, or career opportunities
  • Meet your mentee in person at the ice-breaker mixer
  • Introduce your mentee to at least 5 colleagues
  • Be easily identified as a mentor at the meeting
  • Meet your mentee for free mentoring lunches
  • Meet your mentee again later in the week, as necessary, to answer any questions or reflect on science sessions
