Dear everyone,

Greetings from the Chinese American Biopharmaceutical Society (CABS), Business and Career Development committee!

Building upon the success of the CAN (Career Advisory Network) program last year, we have decided to launch the program again this year. We would like to extend a sincere invitation to you to join us as either a mentor or a mentee. The goal of CAN is to foster the development of future life sciences professionals and leaders through mentoring, skill enhancement, and networking opportunities. The program runs for a period of six months and offers one-on-one mentoring sessions, as well as small and large group networking events. Mentors and mentees are expected to meet once a month during the six months, either in-person or virtually.

Paring of mentors and mentees will be based on a variety of factors such as background, mutual interest, career goals, locations, etc. Program is scheduled to be formally launched on April 22 with a kick off meeting. Below is a tentative schedule:

      Mentor/Mentee registration opens: Saturday, 3/11/2023

      Registration closes: Saturday, 4/8/2023

      Program acceptance, notification emails sent: Saturday, 4/15/2023
