In June, YERUN is organising a series of four online events dedicated to early career researchers. Discussing about current challenges, stakeholder experiences and policy initiatives, participants will exchange views along four main themes: intersectoral mobility, mentoring, the impact of funding schemes on careers, and the practical challenges faced by university services to implement career policies.
During the second appointment, taking place on 16 June from 12:30 to 14:00 CEST, the speakers will discussion mentoring of early career researchers and staff in universities:
Mentoring can facilitate the professional development of both early career researchers and university staff. It can also become a useful instrument in the toolbox of equality, diversity and inclusion policies. Although mentoring can take place organically, concrete action may be needed to support it and foster a culture of mentoring in academia. This session reviews some of the challenges and solutions found by universities to develop and make good use of this practice.
