Mentoring and Networking Events

We host mentoring and networking events for emerging scholars at professional association meetings and conferences including:

  • The National Research Conference on Early Childhood (NRCEC)
  • The National Council on Family Relations (NCFR) Annual Conference
  • The Society for Research in Child Development (SRCD) Biennial Meeting
  • The Population Association of America (PAA) Annual Meeting
  • The Child Care and Early Education Policy Research Consortium (CCEEPRC) Annual Meeting

These events have generated discussion between emerging scholars and mentors on shared research interests and ideas for collaboration, and provided professional development advice, such as how to apply for graduate school, enter the job market, or pursue a research agenda. The events have also helped to strengthen partnering organizations by highlighting the importance of nurturing researchers who study Hispanics.

Upcoming Mentoring and Networking Events

Hispanic Center & PAA Research Mentoring and Networking Event
The Hispanic Center and the Population Association of America (PAA) are hosting a mentoring and networking event at the PAA Annual Conference. The event is designed to facilitate relationships between mentees (students & new professionals) and mentors (leaders in the field) studying Hispanic populations and/or racial and ethnic equity. Mentors and mentees will have the opportunity to choose among various discussion topics including those related to studying Hispanic populations, equity issues in population studies, and career development more broadly. Participants will be assigned to groups based on topical interest and will have ample opportunity to engage in informal discussions with both their peers and mentors. The event will be held April 18, 2024 at 7:00 a.m. CT. To register, for the event please contact Ana Maria.
