SNE Mentoring Program
The Spanish Nuclear Society Mentoring Program has been held every year for five years within the framework of the Annual Meeting. The Employment and Professional Development Commission is committed to attracting and retaining talent within the sector, and that is why it holds different contests to discover it, namely: the best records for the country’s nuclear master’s degrees, the best Master’s Degree Final Projects, and the Talent Attraction Contest. The winners of these contests are invited by the SNE to the Annual Meeting and are also participants in this mentoring program.
The program is basically divided into three parts:
Before the Annual Meeting
During this period, we intend to hold several virtual sessions (given the intrinsically decentralised nature of the program) with mentees to raise awareness of the program and what it consists of and, above all, to get to know each other. There will also be two colloquiums with professionals from the sector, one aimed at research and the other at companies. The virtual sessions will also include a talk on personal branding and will close with strategies for working in research in Spain.
Mentees can ask questions that will be resolved throughout the program, working in micro and group mentoring.
During the Annual Meeting
During the RA, the mentees will be introduced to their respective mentors, carrying out one-to-one mentoring sessions. Likewise, challenges will be proposed to them so they can get to know each other and collaborate, thus working on peer mentoring.
After the Annual Meeting
In this period, the next steps of the program will be set. Strategies for maintaining contact, creating synergies, and keeping up to date with the nuclear sector will be defined. Also, the dates of the awards ceremony to be held at the Operational Experience Days 2023, which will be held in 2024, will be discussed.
