Candid Conversations

About

The NASPA Center for Scholarship, Research, and Professional Development for Women is thrilled to sponsor Candid Conversations, a one-on-one mentoring program for those who identify as women at all professional levels each year during the NASPA Annual Conference.  Candid Conversations is an exciting program that provides opportunities for mentorship, coaching, and professional development to new and seasoned student affairs professionals.

As participants in Candid Conversations, mentors and mentees meet during the NASPA Annual Conference to discuss topics including work-life integration, career advancement strategies, professional goals, and many other relevant topics.  Though there is no expectation that mentee-mentor relationships will continue after the conference, we are delighted that many remain strong and significant over time.  Note: Information and advice provided in mentoring sessions represent the opinions of the mentor and are not representations of NASPA as an association.

Want to Participate?

In the months leading up to the NASPA Annual Conference, mentees and mentors are invited to register in order to participate. Mentees will have the opportunity to match with selected mentors based on similar experiences, interests, professional aspirations, and other unique areas.  Once mentees and mentors match, both will receive follow-up information. Mentees and mentors are encouraged to connect prior to the Conference in order to establish plans for meeting. Conversations at the Conference tend to last about an hour.
