Challenges to solutions, one talk at a time. The EAGE Digital is all about creating connections and what better way to make new connections than joining our Mentoring Programme?

By becoming a mentor or mentee you have the chance to enrich your path through the event by getting to know another attendee and sharing a part of their journey.

About the Mentoring Programme

The Programme consists of a match between two registered delegates of the conference.
Different matching options are possible: are you a young professional seeking career guidance? Several EAGE volunteers are senior geoscientists who can transfer valuable experience. Are you in your mid-career and considering your next step? Discussing with someone who has been in your place before might be a great way to find your path forward! Or if you are interested in learning about a different path, you may also opt to connect with a professional from another field.
So whether you are at the start of your career,  or have experience to share, you can sign up to be matched with another attendee at the start of the event and attend in good company!

How does it work?

Participating in the Mentoring Programme is free for registered attendees. Applications will open from 2 March 2022
All you need to do is fill in a quick form; if a mentor or a mentee that fits your criteria is available, you will be connected via e-mail.
Note the match will be based on the preferences you expressed in the form. We will endeavour to find a good match for you: if there are no available profiles matching the specific preferences that you indicated, the closest matching possibility will be proposed.

The next steps are up to you: matched participants are responsible for initiating communications and free to connect during the conference without obligations. We encourage participants to connect early to make the most of their mentoring time at the event. Here are some suggestions to get started:

  • Introduce yourself and state your motivation for joining the programme
  • Share plans for attending the event (Are there sessions or activities that you could attend together and discuss?)
  • Share/ask advice about the programme (Which sessions or activities do you recommend attending?)
  • Agree on follow-ups and action points, for example at the end of the day or after specific sessions or activities

In the exhibition hall you will also find dedicated spaces that you can use to meet with your mentor/mentee during the conference. [details??]

From a one-time chat to a lifelong friendship, mentoring is a 2-way exchange process that can add great value to your EAGE Digital experience and expand your professional horizons. Make sure to join!
