The purpose of the mentoring program includes building a support network between researchers with different academic experiences and backgrounds, empowering early-stage researchers and supporting stable and creative relationships between scholars involved in LGBTI+ studies.
The mentoring programme of the COST Action LGBTI+ Social and Economic (in)Equalities is a tool for mentees as well as for mentors. It allows both parties to critically reflect on their academic and non-academic goals and paths. The mentoring program activities could include, but are not limited to, developing a research plan, writing academic papers, learning (new) research skills, understanding recruitment processes, preparing a grant application, handling queer hostile environments in research.
To express their interest in the mentoring programme, interested parties should fill out the form covering their personal information and academic interests, the link for which is below:
The mentor and the mentee are expected to meet at a minimum of two times a year (in person or online).
