SE3 launched its Long-Term mentorship program on Tuesday, March 19, 2019 at Thornton Tomasetti in San Francisco. It was a GREAT success!!
The goal of the program is to create mentee-mentor pairs or groups across age, experience, and firms to encourage less experienced engineers to gain strategic guidance and career advice. Mentees had a chance to meet and mingle with their prospective mentors, and the event was a success! If you are interested in being a mentor for future mentorship events, please complete this form.
A big thank you to our mentors for their willingness to participate and mentorship co-chairs, Brenna Marcoux and Sarah Sullivan and co-chairs Zahraa Saiyed and Hayley Dickson, and several other SE3 volunteers for their efforts in making this event and program a great success.
The SEAONC SE3 Committee will be hosting a kick-off event for the SE3 Long-Term Mentorship Program this Tuesday, March 19 at Thorton Tomasetti's office in downtown San Francisco. Our hope is that this program will give opportunities for less-experienced engineers to gain strategic guidance and career advice from other people from the local community.
Based on data collected from each of the participants, mentee-mentor pairs or groups were developed by the program co-chairs to provide alignment based on relevant experience, firms, career focus topics, and meet-up logistics.
We'd like to acknowledge the many individuals who are going to be volunteering their time and insights as mentors for the coming year. We look forward to hearing how the mentoring sessions go from both perspectives, and will be soliciting feedback throughout the process.
A big shout-out to our SEAONC SE3 Mentorship Committee Co-leads, Brenna Marcoux and Sarah Sullivan, and contributor, Yoshita Manne, and support from current SEAONC SE3 committee co-chairs Hayley Dickson and Zahraa Saiyed for putting so much dedicated time and thought into this program.
Thank you to TT-SF for generously allowing us to use their space for this event! We appreciate it immensely!
