The CAN program aims to cultivate CABS members to be the next generation of life science professionals and leaders through mentoring, skills building, and networking. It is a six-month program with 1:1 mentoring meetings and group sessions. We have lined up 30 mentors (click here for mentor bios) for 2016 with diverse expertise. Once matched, mentees will meet with their mentor monthly to discuss specific career-building topics. As part of the process, participants will create a personal strategic plan for identifying ways to achieve career goals. Except for the 1:1 mentoring, CAN program will also host Brunch/cafe gathering, mock interview, and panel discussion to facilitate the networking among the participants and peer mentoring platform. Please check here for the detailed 2016 Schedule and mentor bio.

CAN program has been successfully held for the past six years and received many positive feedbacks. It is an excellent opportunity to interact and network with a diverse group of people in academia and industry in a supportive and informal setting. 2016 CAN program will continue to provide our members an interactive relationship with mentors discussing personalized career issues and a platform for supporting, networking and career development.
