Mentorship Program Kick-Off Event
By Marlo Maynigo, E.I.T.
The 2017-2018 ASCE OC Mentorship Program kicked off in excellent fashion on October 12, 2017, at Golden State Water Company in Anaheim, CA. Fourteen protégés were paired with fourteen mentors that spanned many different disciplines under civil engineering, such as structural, transportation, environmental, and water resources.
The big pairing reveal was done in the form of a game. The name of a famous world landmark was placed on the back of the protégé’s nametag, and the coinciding location name was placed on the back of the mentor’s nametag. Everybody found their pairing by joining the correct world landmark with the location (such as the Eiffel Tower with Paris, France). The participants were then informed about the upcoming events for the program. After the event, a number of us migrated to the Anaheim Packing District.
We are excited about what the program has in store for the year. These pairings have the potential to become lasting professional relationships and we would like to thank everybody for participating.
