Stages of Mentoring
AAEA mentorship programs should provide opportunities for all members, at all stages of their careers, to access resources and engage in activities that will help them develop professionally:
- Graduate Students Members are the future of agricultural and applied economics. These members need help developing their research methodology; learning how to publish their research and build professional networks; and navigating the job market for academic, agency, industry, and NGO positions.
- Early Career Professional Members are particularly in need of guidance as they enter the workforce and attempt to navigate their work environments, performance expectations for their positions in academic and non-academic settings, and work/life balance.
- Mid-Career and More Senior Members also have professional development needs that may be related to any functions of their positions, including administrative duties.
- International/LILMI Members are not always able to attend the annual meeting, for example to participate in the cohort development activities that take place there. However, information resources for these members are available on the AAEA website, and funding opportunities to attend the meeting are available from the AAEA Trust.
- In 2017/2018, the Africa section of the AAEA launched a pilot mentoring program to support young African scholars on article writing and publication. You can learn more about this program and the section’s experience here or email Saweda Onipede Liverpool-Tasie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
