Read the White Paper

The SIOP Women's Inclusion Network (WIN) committee is continuing their informal mentorship program where they pair volunteer mentors with SIOP mentees. This year they have 13 amazing mentors volunteering their time to support mentees in their areas of expertise starting in December. You can find their background information within the sign-up form. The goal of these small mentor groups is not only to provide expert advice but to also create connections with fellow SIOP members and build a network of trusted professionals. The mentoring groups will be no larger than seven mentees to provide a comfortable space for all to discuss questions and topics at each session.

The mentee enrollment will close on November 21, 2021.
