 Quality & Productivity (Q&P) Section Initiates Mentoring Program


The Q&P Section is pleased to introduce a Mentoring Program for its members! 

The goal of this initiative is to help members further enrich and enhance their professional experience through achieving personal and professional goals.

The program’s specific goals are to connect those wanting mentoring with those wanting to mentor and to facilitate those interactions.


Sharing knowledge, expertise, and experience can be mutually rewarding.  A constructive mentorship relationship can take many forms and may occur at any career stage. Benefits for mentors and mentees include building connections and networks, passing on knowledge, and bridging the gaps among generations. It also matures the statistics profession, identifies emerging talents, and enhances professional relationships.

The program committee will facilitate face-to-face meetings between matched mentors and mentees at JSM 2018, but attendance is not necessary. Other interactions may take place either in-person or via electronic means, depending on mentor and mentee’s preference. 

If you are interested in participating in the Mentoring Program, please complete one of the below forms by June 30th. The program committee will make every effort to find a suitable match for all applicants, and will notify applicants of the outcome by July 15th.
