The ASA Biopharmaceutical Section is pleased to extend our invitation for the 2022 Mentoring Program to all section members.
Networking can be challenging but is beneficial. Meeting others in our profession can help us quickly learn the ropes, improve our careers, and contribute to the statistical profession. Finding a mentor has its challenges and, keeping that in mind, the Biopharmaceutical Section has created a mentoring program based on the mentoring blueprint created by the Committee on Applied Statisticians. More than 200 people have participated in our mentoring program since its launch in 2014. Both mentors and mentees have expressed enthusiasm and continuity of the program.
The goal of this program is to help members further enrich and enhance their professional experience through achieving personal and professional goals. This may occur through sharing of knowledge and experience between a professional practitioner and someone entering the profession of statistics. A constructive mentorship relationship can take many forms and may occur at any stage of one's career, with benefits for both the mentor and the mentee. We will provide hands-on resources for mentors and mentees to facilitate their interactions. Information related to the mentoring activities and additional resources for mentors and mentees is available via the Biopharmaceutical Section website (http://community.amstat.org/biop/aboutus/sub-committees/mentoring).
Currently we are looking for mentors and mentees for the 2022-2023 Mentoring Program. Are you interested in becoming a mentor to a statistician and helping fellow Biopharmaceutical statisticians? Are you a potential mentee, or can you nominate a statistician who may be looking for a mentorship program? If so, please email your contact information to (email@example.com) with the subject: "Biopharmaceutical Section Mentoring Program". We look forward to hearing from you!
