  • communication and interpersonal skills;
  • networking;
  • well-being at the workplace;
  • increasing visibility in the community;
  • managing research;
  • publishing;

  • supervising students;
  • managing administrative duties, etc.

When applying, Mentees may request support from a Mentor to develop specific new skills, such as:
