The Program will kick off at a 90-minute launch meeting on 4 February 2022 at 9:00 a.m. AKST/1:00 p.m. EST. After that, mentorship groups will meet at least monthly. There will be two additional all-cohort webinars in May and October 2022.

The IARPC Collaborations Mentorship Program draws on the community to provide mentoring opportunities from a variety of career stages and paths within the Arctic research community. It brings together small groups of researchers and other professionals to discuss career opportunities and issues, learn from and support one another, and grow together.

Anyone working in the Arctic research space can join the IARPC Collaborations Mentorship Program. Participants do not have to be a scientist or be actively researching/publishing. This program is not exclusively for early-career individuals and organizers encourage people from all career stages to sign up.

Participants will be placed in small mentoring circles (four to five people per circle) that include individuals from a spread of career stages and types of careers. Depending on the number of people interested in the 2022 session, circles may be organized by general field, or may include a variety of fields and themes.
