Mentoring Breakfast Discussion Tables – August Update

Dear Conference Attendees,

The SSAWW 2015 Mentoring Breakfast is for everyone – there is something of interest for SSAWWers at all stages of their careers.

We have put together a wide range of topics, mostly growing out of suggestions by SSAWW members, and are very pleased to be continuing this tradition at SSAWW.

Please come and join the discussion at breakfast at the table of your choice on Friday morning of the conference, 7:30 to 8:50, as a mentor, a mentee or just to listen and converse.

Thanks to all who have agreed to facilitate

If you did not sign up for the breakfast when you registered for the conference, you may still do so through the conference registration site. The cost for regular members is $20. Graduate students are complimentary but they must be pre-registered.
