The charge of the SETAC North America Career Development Committee, previously known as the Mentoring Committee, is to provide a forum to foster mentoring for technical and career development activities for SETAC members at all stages in their professional path, including early-, mid-, late- or even post-career tracks. Student members of SETAC North America are mentored through the activities of the Student Advisory Council. Through active engagement with other SETAC committees, the Career Development Committee will engage the membership in offering a range of career enhancing educational opportunities, including formal mentor–mentee activities, courses on topics of importance and relevance to career and post-career members, and sponsoring special events that provide networking opportunities and highlight the benefits of mentoring in developing both professional and personal enrichment.
