Mentors can be mentored too. Now that you are a member of the network – make full use of it. Look through the AMZAP network list of your colleagues. Is there anyone on this list who you don’t know, but whose institution or title suggests that they could be someone from whom you could learn? You can also learn more about our mentorship program to be matched with someone who could help with your career development.
Sometimes the best support comes from people who look and sound like you. These individuals tend to have a deeper understanding of your struggle to overcome obstacles and may have helpful advice based on their own road to success. Reach out to them – they are your colleagues and they want to help. You can also email AMZAP leadership with questions or concerns. We will try to help or to connect you with the most appropriate AMZAP member.
