DC-AAPOR Mentoring Event
November 19, 2019
5:00-7:30pm
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!

The Loft at The Hamilton

Registration: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/2019-dc-aapor-holiday-party-tickets-80588011913

We’ve had an exciting year as a DC-AAPOR family and it’s time to get together and celebrate one last time before 2020.  Join us and your fellow colleagues as we look back on a successful year and look towards 2020. Come enjoy free food and beverages, meet your DC-AAPOR council and your incoming 2020 council members.

This year, our holiday party will be held at The Loft at The Hamilton – 600 14th Street NW, Washington DC, easily accessible via Gallery Place/Chinatown metro stop on the Red line.

In addition to drinks and appetizers we will be announcing both the student paper award and the annual Outstanding Achievement Award at the party.

As always, the party is free for DC-AAPOR members–but registration is required! Non-members are welcome, but require a paid registration – which will also give you DC-AAPOR membership through 2020.

Not a member? Need to renew your membership? We encourage you to sign up or renew through the DC-AAPOR website, https://dc-aapor.org/membership/shop/. If you join now (good through 2020), you’ll get to attend for free as well–which is cheaper than purchasing a ticket to the party! You can also join or renew when renewing your national AAPOR membership. If you want to confirm your membership, please contact Secretary/Membership Chair Renee Stepler (renee.a.stepler@census.gov).
