Speed Mentoring for Women in AIB

The Women in Academy of International Business (WAIB) is delighted to invite interested WAIB members to participate as mentees and interact with accomplished mentors at the second annual “Speed Mentoring” event to be held during the annual AIB conference in Copenhagen. Speed Mentoring session is scheduled for Thursday June 27, 2019, from 14:30 to 15:45.  To participate, you must be an ABD Ph.D student or must have received your Ph.D within the past 10 years. 

About Speed Mentoring

       Mentees that sign up for this special event will get the opportunity to engage in five (5) consecutive 10-minute one-on-one or small group discussions with five (5) different mentors who will answer mentees’ most pressing career-related questions.

       This event is an excellent opportunity for participants to network and seek advice from experienced mentors (see the star-studded list at the end of this e-mail) on a variety of career-related topics in a fun and time-efficient manner.

What Mentors and Mentees are Saying

“I loved the event: it is such a valuable experience to be able to ask your burning questions to experienced renowned professors and receive inspiring advice you have never thought of.” (Mentee, 2018)

“It was great fun and I very much enjoyed being involved in this effort – what a great initiative!” (Mentor, 2018)
