OBW Mentorship Program

 

The mission of the Oregon Bio Women (OBW) Mentorship Program is to accelerate the professional development and growth of women in the Oregon bioscience community.

Seeking to volunteer as a mentor? Or, are you at a point where you are seeking a mentor to support your professional or educational efforts in bioscience. Our mission is to pair dedicated mentors with mentees.

Become an OBW Mentor

Show your active support for women working in Oregon’s bioscience community by volunteering as a mentor. A modest commitment as an OBW mentor can make a positive impact that lasts a lifetime.

The OBW Mentorship Program is now accepting applications for our inaugural session beginning Fall 2022.

Program highlights and what to expect as a mentor:

  • Meet for a minimum of one hour per month for six months
  • Meetings can be remote or in-person
  • Between meetings maintain regular communication with mentees
  • A support team will help facilitate your effort

Eligibility requirements: People that identify as being a woman, employed in bioscience and currently an Oregon Bioscience Association Member.* You should also have relevant expertise and knowledge in an area that matches the needs of the mentee. Our team will assess this criteria on a case by case basis during the application process and through individual interviews.

Become an OBW Mentee

Our program is uniquely positioned to provide mentees with dedicated, independent mentorship support.  OBW mentors are ready to support your educational or professional efforts based on your own personal aspirations.
