2006 PAESMEM Position Paper

The 2005 PAESMEM awardees collaborated with a number of previous awardees on a white paper that encouraged various STEM funding agencies to implement policies and programs that focus on mentoring. The report's title is: "Mentoring for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Workforce Development and Lifelong Productivity: Success across the K through Grey Continuum."

As stated in the Executive Summary, “The strength of the scientific discovery and technological innovation enterprise is always built upon a foundation of mentoring.”

MentorNet: The e-Mentoring Network Program for Diversity in Science and Engineering

A 2001 PAESMEM awardee, MentorNet is a social network for matching mentors with protégés. “MentorNet is the premiere and most experienced web-based e-mentoring program in the world. Every year MentorNet matches thousands of students, postdocs, and early career researchers in engineering and science on hundreds of campuses to mentors in the professions for one-on-one guided relationships.” The program has made over 30,000 matches since it began in 1997.

Practicing Mentoring

YouTube video featuring 2009 PAESMEM awardee Jo Handelsman, from Yale University. Handelsman describes guidelines that she and her colleagues have developed to help scientists become better mentors. These include listening, asking questions, stating expectations, building independence, and looking at things from the perspective of the mentee or protégé. Good advice for scientists at all stages of their careers.
