Chiasma Connect is a mentorship programme aiming to link high-achieving students at the University of Auckland with members of the New Zealand science industry. This unique opportunity at the university allows students to gain valuable insights into the science industry, professional development, networking skills and more. Mentors have the opportunity to make a positive impact on their mentee’s career path, meet the leaders of tomorrow and to gain additional leadership and management skills.
Chiasma Connect is run over 20 weeks, beginning around late April. The programme starts with an introductory evening where the participants first receive training on how to be effective mentors or mentees, followed by the first meeting between the pairs. The mentor and mentee then meet approximately every fortnight and spend an hour discussing appropriate topics of mutual interests. Although Chiasma will provide the basic topics to be discussed, it would be ideal for some of these ideas to be customised to fit individual needs and interests.
