Our Mentoring Program

Acknowledging potential challenges and gaps that may be unique to PhD students from underrepresented minorities (URM), LGBTQIA++ community (broadly defined), first-generation college, or from nationalities outside of the US, the MENTORING arm of AMIE will undertake the following activities:

  • Deliver capability building workshops for mentees on high-impact topics such as:
    • Navigating academia (e.g., applying for funding, refereeing experience, publications, network, seminars)
    • Navigating the job market (e.g., presentation skills, transitioning to academia, think tank, NGOs, non-academia)
  • Long-term mentorship between AMIE mentees and established AMIE mentors (e.g., one to one, or in mentorship groups)
  • Peer-to-peer mentorship
  • Establish buddy-system among mentees
  • Host events to raise awareness around mental health and general well-being

We will recruit mentees through open calls. Please get in touch with us to learn about ways in which you can partner. Individual researchers (both academic and non-academic) as well as research organizations and universities are welcome! Contact us here, or email us at info@econmentoring.org
