Event description

Description

Mentorship is key to the success of any career. Mentors can be a positive influence in a young civil engineer's career and have the potential to shape the career directions of that young civil engineer for years to come. Regardless of whether you are a seasoned project manager with 25 years of experience or a staff level engineer with only a couple of years of experience, sooner or later you will be in the position to be a mentor to someone in your respective field of expertise. Why be a mentor? How do you perceive if someone wants to mentor you? How do you engage someone to become your mentor? How do these mentor/protégé relationships form?


Come join the ASCE OC Mentorship Committee as it hosts a panel on the importance of mentorship in the civil engineering field. Four seasoned professional engineers will share their own experiences in the hopes of inspiring the minds of potential mentors and protégés everywhere. Below are our panelists and their biographies.
