Mentees have been presented with the opportunity to present their research papers for suggestions and recommendations from their mentors and colleagues in a seminar held by the Gender Mainstreaming Directorate from 30th January to 31st January, 2017 at the Registrar’s Conference Room.

The welcome address by the Director of Gender Mainstreaming Directorate, UEW, Obaapanin Oforiwaa Adu, commended all mentees for their efforts and the mentors for their dedication to the course over the year. She further encouraged the mentees to take in good faith the criticism and suggestions from the mentors, and allow them to propel them into writing a good research paper that can be published in any journal and other media outlets.

The seminar brought together 13 mentees and eight panel members, mainly mentors to critique the various presentations. The mentors on their part encouraged the mentees to embark on more rigorous research since it forms a major aspect of their career progression in the university. They indicated their readiness to offer assistance even beyond the scheduled time for the mentoring scheme put in place by the Directorate of Gender Mainstreaming.
