Mentorship Committee

Mentorship Kickoff Event

By: Ryan Quach

On Wednesday, December 2nd the 2015-2016 ASCE OC Mentorship Program hosted its Kickoff event with a dinner at the Back Bay Conference Center.  Participants consisted of mentors and protégés awaiting the results of their pairing, which were based on speed mentoring events hosted in November. The Kickoff event included a presentation which laid out general guidelines for the program and also revealed the protégé/mentor pairings. The pairs then discussed and prepared a memorandum of understanding (MOU) outlining their goals and expectations for the year. The pairs are expected to meet at least once per month on the times they feel works best with their individual schedules. The Mentorship Program will meet again in April for a Mid-Year Check-In Event to see how everyone is enjoying the program thus far and to share success stories.
