Awards are presented during the SSSS Annual Conference to honor individuals in the sexuality field. SSSS members are invited to nominate colleagues, mentors, even themselves. Members are also eligible to receive specific awards. Each award has its own guidelines, application procedures, and selection criteria.
• MENTORSHIP PROGRAM
This program is open to all SSSS members! For mentors, this is an opportunity to give back! You’ll provide technical knowledge, assistance, encouragement, empathy, and respect to a mentee, which creates a supportive environment that fosters networking as the mentee develops their long-term career goals. As a mentee, you’ll receive your mentor’s support, skills, and wisdom, while pursuing your own career goals, which helps build a professional network, and creates productive working relationships with other sex scientists.
