Registration for this event has closed.


This is a fun and face-paced networking session designed to bring early career faculty and fellows together with mid-career and senior faculty.

Mentees will be assigned to a track and will have 10 minutes for one-on-one mentoring with mentors assigned to their track. After completion of the speed mentoring activity, the entire small group (mentors and mentees) in each track will meet for a lively discussion of mentees’ short- and long-term goals.

Additional Information

Mentors are APA members who have been in an academic faculty position for 8-10 years or longer.

Mentees are APA members who are in fellowship or in their first 6 years of an academic faculty position. Mentees should come to the session with questions prepared to make the most of the 10 minutes per mentor.

To accommodate time zones and the virtual format, Speed Mentoring will take place on Sunday, May 2 from 4:30 pm ET – 6:00 pm ET. Within each track, each mentor will receive copies of the mentees’ CVS for review prior to the event. Mentees will receive copies of mentors’ CVs.
