Speed Mentoring
Organizer: Lindsay C. Sarin

If you've heard of speed dating - dozens of people looking for the right match, cycling through fixed 5 minute conversations to quickly sort out prospective future romantic interests from potential romantic "duds" - you're on the right track. Now, think that, rather than meeting a potential future spouse or significant other - you are meeting future potential mentors and mentees, who will be valuable sources of information to help you make your budding career as information professionals.
