Mentor: an experienced and trusted adviser.
Mentoring is a very personal activity and often arises naturally through the course of networking. Mentoring partnerships are particularly beneficial when strong connections are built between individuals who share professional interests. This strongly motivates our new Professional Networking and Mentoring program. The AESS is proud to be one of the few IEEE Societies to offer a customized program that is specifically tailored to suit our international community.
The AESS is fortunate to have a well-established core of experienced members (Mentor Profiles) that can actively contribute to this goal. We encourage and empower members to help grow the Society through this program. Mentoring is a powerful way to give back to the AESS community as it makes a meaningful contribution to developing members. We need potential mentors to profile on our website and trust you will take this opportunity to inspire the future contributors to our Society.
By joining the program, you will be able to select mentees who express interest. You may participate at your discretion as much or as little as you like. The Resources tab provides information and guidelines for participation as well as tips for how to get the most out of a mentoring partnership. If you feel you can help to make a difference, please do not hesitate to Sign Up for the program and be added to the Mentor Profiles. Questions may be directed to the AESS networking and mentoring coordinator, Jane Buckingham.
