Building a Culture of Mentorship
October 7 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Free IEEE-USA “Ultimate Upgrade Essentials” Webinar: – Ultimate Upgrade Essentials: Building a Culture of Mentorship Developing Mentors and Mentees is a natural part of an organization’s lifecycle. Yet when it becomes a “program,” it can become a stilted, forced process with little long term benefit to the participants. On the other hand, organic mentorship is a way to robustly develop lifelong mentors and focuses in building a community rather than programs. This webinar will detail how this culture can be built one person at a time, and the upgrade of value that it ultimately brings. ————————————————————— The Ultimate Upgrade: Essentials (Free IEEE-USA Webinar Series) In a world at the crossroads of technology and humanity, can each of us make a difference?
