Applications are open for the next cohort of the Society for Scholarly Publishing’s ongoing Mentorship Program! Our Career Development Committee seeks potential mentors and mentees to connect for professional development, information exchange, networking, personal growth, and career advancement.
Mentorship is valuable for professionals at all career levels. It provides mentors and mentees opportunities to develop new relationships, share experiences, and learn from others outside their organizations.
This exciting program connects members of SSP for professional development, information exchange, networking, personal growth, and career advancement. Learn more about the benefits of an SSP mentorship.
The next cohort will run from September to March 2024, and we are accepting applications for mentees and mentors now through September 4, 2023. Participants will be notified in late September.
SSP is deeply committed to fostering a community that supports and benefits from the talents of scholarly publishers from a wide range of backgrounds. We believe that our community must center on diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility, and we strongly encourage people from traditionally marginalized groups to apply as mentors or mentees.
The Mentorship Program is made possible by the Generations Fund. Generous donations from members and industry endow the Generations Fund to allow SSP the resources, in perpetuity, to continue this program. Learn more or make a gift to help us reach our $500,000 goal.
There is no cost to apply, but participants (mentors and mentees) must be SSP members. Visit SSP’s Mentorship page for more information about program details, eligibility requirements, and how to apply.
