Dear CABS members,
It is my great pleasure to invite you to the 2017 CABS Career Advisory Network (CAN) program Kickoff event. CAN is a six-month program with 1:1 mentoring meetings and group network sessions. We have lined up an exceptional group of mentors for 2017 with diverse expertise and experiences encompassing pharmaceutical R&D, biotechnology development, project management, business development, patent law, management consulting, venture capital and entrepreneurs. 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. This year, we will be collaborating with Chinese Biopharmaceutical Association (CBA) to expand the CAN program, in which we will increase the size of our mentorship pool from both the mentor and mentee perspective. This will broaden the wealth of mentorship expertise and foster a culture of collaboration and partnership with local associations in the Bay Area, in addition to the commitment we have for our members from both organizations.
CAN program has been successfully held for the past seven 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 from both CBA and CABS mentors. 2017 CAN program will continue to provide our members an interactive relationship with mentors discussing personalized career issues such as work life balance, transition alternative career path, entrepreneurship in US and China, workplace interpersonal skills and managerial skills.
Join our kickoff event to learn more about the program details and network with mentors and other mentees. You will have the opportunity of identifying a mutually agreed-upon mentor or mentee at the meeting. Seats are limited. The online application link and mentor list will be published CABS CAN Program website after the 4/29 kickoff event.

Registration Requirement: Free to members and non-members. Must be a member of either CABS or CBA to participate as a mentee.
