DC-AAPOR Mentoring Event

November 19, 2019


Location: AARP: 601 E St NW Washington DC 20049

DC-AAPOR’s Diversity Working Group is hosting a mentoring event on November 19, 2019 to facilitate mentoring in the survey research industry.  Matthew Hanzlik, VP, Diversity & Inclusion at Nielsen, will present on the benefits of mentorship and its best practices. This talk will be followed by a reception where potential mentors and mentees can meet one another. The reception will include complimentary beer, wine, and hors d’oeuvres.

Registration is free, but required. Registration will close on November 13th so that we can provide a list of attendees to the venue security. Please bring a government-issued picture ID with you on the day of the event to gain admission to the venue. Please register at: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/dc-aapor-mentoring-event-tickets-76432929951.

Additional information for potential mentees:

The reception will allow you to meet with potential mentors. As you leave the reception, you will be asked to list the potential mentors you are most interested in meeting with again in the future. After the event, a member of the Diversity Working Group will notify you about your match with a mentor. Once you have received this notification, it is up to you to connect with your new mentor.

Additional information for potential mentors:

We are looking for people with about 5 years of experience in the survey industry or more, but with a wide variety of backgrounds, levels of seniority, industries (government, non-profit, for-profit, and academia), and types of jobs. After registering for the event, a member of the Diversity Working Group will contact you to collect a short bio.

After the reception, mentees will provide the DC-AAPOR Diversity Working Group with their list of mentors they’d be interested in meeting with further. DC-AAPOR will notify mentors and mentees of their matches, and it will be up to mentees and mentors to determine their following meeting(s). The time commitment will be decided by the mentor-mentee pair and could be as little as an hour per month.

Thank you to our sponsors for this event!
