Honoring PLACE and Creating Space for Mentorship and Community-Building in the International and Intercultural Communication Division

Sponsor: International and Intercultural Communication Division
Sat, 11/19: 2:00 PM - 3:15 PM CST
Room: Mardi Gras Ballroom Salon E - 3rd Floor 
This interactive session aims to facilitate connections, encourage community-building, and promote mentoring for members of NCA's International and Intercultural Communication Division (IICD). Inspired by generative discussions and members' recommendations during IICD's 2021 Business Meeting in Seattle, as well as the 2022 NCA convention theme of Honoring PLACE: People, Liberation, Advocacy, Community, and Environment, this session brings together members at all levels (including graduate students, post docs, independent scholars, faculty, senior scholars, and administrators) to engage in a series of mentorship conversations at round tables on topics like publishing, grantmaking, teaching, leadership, community engagement, navigating the academic job market, and career advancement.

We conceptualize mentorship as a critical and unique relationship that aims to address members' professional growth and needs, such as sharing strategies for achieving specific goals, sparking productive collaborations, exchanging social support, and overcoming obstacles. Partnering with mentors will allow session participants to benefit from the wisdom, experience, and networks of each other. In doing so, this session creates space for attendees to expand their professional networks, exchange ideas and advice, and spark new mentorships. All are welcome to attend.
