CONTEXT AND JUSTIFICATION
The Higher Institute for Growth in HEalth Research (HIGHER) is a six-year old consortium of women (based in Cameroon) creatively working towards promoting women as leaders in health research. With the support of a WHO-TDR grant, HIGHER was established in 2014 to support and encourage a sustainable professional growth of early career researchers dedicated to improving the health of communities in Africa. Since its creation, the highly successful Mentor-Protégé Program (MPP) has been the consortium’s cornerstone. Mentoring and coaching are key elements of the HIGHER and the mentor-protégé pairs work diligently for the advancement in their research career by sharing indispensable skills and thus linking women for leadership development for personal, professional and social change.
The International Fair for Young African Researchers (IFYAR) offers a platform for youths to revive their interest in diverse areas for scientific research. The IFYAR is therefore a great opportunity to capture their interest in scientific research and plan specific mentoring and coaching skills and competencies for a successful research career. We aim at promoting the Mentor-Protégé Program to young African researchers at IFYAR scheduled from 1st to 5th December 2020 in Yaoundé, enrol them in the MPP and contribute in building the next generation of scientists in Africa. The topics to be presented at the Symposium include Time Management, Work – Life Balance, Ethics in scientific research, How to find a mentor and a coach.
B/ ANIMATION OF MENTORSHIP & COUNSELLING BOOTH
A Counselling booth will be animated by HIGHER mentors and mentees from Tuesday, 1st December 2020 to Saturday, 5th December 2020 during the IFYAR 2020. Then, the young scientists will ask questions, interact with the HIGHER team and build networks whereby they shall learn research career needs and preferences based on their strengths and interest. The young scientists shall connect with the HIGHER Women Consortium through a hot email address firstname.lastname@example.org for guidance and counselling in research.
We expect to hold the following activities during these sessions: Coaching, research career counselling, Group discussions by interest or discipline, Networking and more.
