ASCE OC Mentorship Program
2020-2021 Mentorship Program Kick-off Pair Reveal Event!
By Lydia Chun, EIT | Mentorship Co-Chair
On November 11th, 2020, the ASCE OC Mentorship Program began the year with the virtual Kick-off Pair Reveal Event. Participants attended a series of virtual speed interviews between September 30th to October 1st where they conversed with every mentor/mentee to select their preference for the year. The program has a total of 25 participants this year.
The event began with an icebreaker activity where mentors were provided with a trivia question and mentees were provided with an answer. The goal of the activity was to find your corresponding question/answer. Once all was revealed, each pair was then placed into private Zoom Breakout Rooms to discuss goals and visions for the upcoming year.
At the end of the event, participants were given a feedback survey to anonymously provide thoughts and suggestions for improvement. The average rating received for the event was 4.6/5!
