IRRI’s Deputy Director General for Research, Matthew Morell and Director for Human Resource Services, Christine Croombes were in attendance and gave inspiring messages to the mentoring pairs.

The participation in the IRRI Mentoring Program is for one year, with the objective of mentor-mentee pairs sharing known resources, expertise, values, skills, perspectives, attitudes and proficiency. The program allows the mentee to build skills and knowledge while attaining goals for career development. Conversely, it provides the opportunity for the mentor to further enhance his/her skills and knowledge areas by continuously reassessing and building upon those areas.
