Mentor Circle Roles

The international mentor circles will consist of a group of 4-tiered pharmaceutical industry professionals and students. Participants will be grouped to grow professionally and personally by exchanging ideas, and knowledge and discussing common topics of interest.

Each member of the group should contribute equally to planning the meetings as well as initiating conversation. The program is intended to be an opportunity for professionals with more experience to mentor students and recent graduates while at the same time allowing space for reverse mentoring where students and recent graduates can give insight about their experiences and accomplishments to mid-level and executive-level professionals.
