Inclusion is Hard and We Must Do Better | APPAM Leadership Blog Series

Increasingly, activities that focus on inclusion are becoming more and more important. As I’m sure you’ve experienced at your university or research organization: getting to the how is hard. We all know about the why. Having a membership/staff/faculty/student body/leadership that reflects everybody in the larger group and represents all perspectives in decision making is vital. There’s no question that we need and want to engage in as many diversity activities as possible.


APPAM Call for Abstracts: PDW Mentoring Sessions at the 2013 Fall Research Conference

May 10, 2013 01:00 PM

The Association for Public Policy Analysis & Management (APPAM) will hold a mentoring session opportunity as part of its inaugural Professional Development Workshop (PDW) for Doctoral Students, to be held on November 6, one day prior to the official opening of APPAM’s 2013 Fall Research Conference in Washington, D.C., on November 7-9, 2013.

Register for this event.

Mentoring Session Details 

This invitation-only mentoring experience will provide doctoral students in the dissertation development stage of their programs a rare opportunity to engage one-on-one with a leading academic in their field, to receive additional feedback on their dissertation topic. A limited number of mentoring session slots are available; participating students will be paired with a mentor in a one-hour session on the afternoon of November 6.

July 15: Submission deadline
August 15: Participants notified of acceptance
September 1: Deadline for confirmation of attendance at mentoring session

Please note that although we will do our best to encourage invitees to accept the invitation to attend the mentoring session, it will be at the mentor's discretion. If the three suggested mentors are unavailable, the APPAM leadership team will ensure an appropriate match for students from the APPAM membership.

How do I register?
Additional registration details to join the mentoring session will be forwarded to accepted authors in mid-August. Register for this event.

Who can attend?
The mentoring session will be limited to doctoral students who have not defended their dissertation proposal.
