Call for Participation: NESS NextGen Mentorship Program

We are launching the NESS NextGen Mentorship Program to connect members who are newer to the field of statistics and data science with mentors who are more experienced in industry and/or academia. All members of NESS are invited to participate in this mentorship program.

Deadline for Application

March 31st, 2018

Am I eligible?

All members of NESS at any stage in his or her career are encouraged to participate in the mentorship program. If you are interested in becoming a member of NESS, you can sign up here.

How will mentors be matched?

Mentors and mentees will be assigned in pairs. These pairs will be based on past experiences and future aspirations.

How do I participate?

The first step is to sign up here! You are able to be both a mentor and mentee. The program will kick off at the 2018 New England Statistics Symposium on April 13-14 at UMass Amherst with a special reception and meet and greet. You do not have to attend the symposium to participate. After that you and your mentor/mentee will decide how often you would like to meet. Meetings can be in person or over Skype.

If you have any question, please contact the NESS NextGen mentorship committee at
