 Women in International Relations: Mentee Training Session by Ellie Murphy (A’22) Nov 20

On Wednesday, November 13, Tufts Women in International Relations (WIIR) held its first Mentee Training Session.

The Mentee Training Session was open to all Tufts undergraduate students interested in attending. However, the event was specifically designed for the students accepted into our mentorship program in coordination with Fletcher Women in Business. Our mentorship program provides Tufts undergraduates who are interested in International Relations with the opportunity to connect with a Fletcher graduate student. We hope that the students participating in the program will receive advice on graduate school, career paths, and other topics having to do with International Relations.

Considering that this is the first year of the program, we wanted to ensure that it is a success by hosting a “Mentee Training Session”.  The purpose was to go over expectations and provide advice on how to make the most out of having a Fletcher student as a mentor.
