Graduate Student Award – It’s not too late to submit!
Did you miss out on submitting a paper for the Graduate Student Research Award? Good news! ASA has reopened the submission site for a limited time, which means you can still submit your paper, but you must do so by February 11. Click here for more information.
STEP Speed Mentoring: Individual and Group Mentoring
The Students and Emerging Professionals (STEP) Network presents an opportunity for Speed Mentoring at the conference. In the individual session, mentors and mentees meet for at least two rotations, giving mentees an opportunity to meet at least two potential mentors. Mentees will have the opportunity to practice their self-introductions and be clear about their objectives for potential mentoring. In the group session, mentees will have at least two rounds in a group setting to discuss career or leadership questions. Participants for all sessions must complete a short survey to confirm participation in this limited space event. Click here to sign up and plan to attend one of the following sessions:
Monday, March 21 | 3:00–4:00 PM (Individual)
Tuesday, March 22 | 3:30–4:30 PM (Individual)
