This year, the Australian Society for French Studies is launching a mentorship program for colleagues seeking extra support in their careers. Colleagues may seek mentorship for a specific professional goal, such as a promotion application, job search or grant application, and mentees may include but are not limited to postgraduate and ECR candidates. Mentees will be paired with a suitable member of the Society able to advise on their goals, and each pair will decide how often and where to communicate (ex. skype, email) depending on their needs. This is an informal and collegial initiative designed to support colleagues at a range of stages in their academic careers.
If you are already an ASFS member, check your email for details on how to apply. If you are interested in joining the Society and taking part in the program, you can apply for membership here.
