Description:
The panel of seasoned SGO Mentor “Sharks” will entertain mentoring proposals designed to be impactful SGO-wide. The overall goal of these proposals is to mentor fellow and early career members within SGO, while bringing about novel proposals to serve the entire SGO membership. Initial proposals will be reviewed by the SGO Program Committee Shark Bait Task Force. The Task Force will determine which proposals will go on to be presented to the SGO Sharks in the final round of SGO Shark Bait. Each Shark will give thoughts and input for each proposal, and each will vote for whether or not they would “buy in” to the proposal. The team that receives the highest total votes from the Sharks wins! The winning team can then choose the mentor with whom they wish to work from the pool of Shark mentors.
