Engineers and Geoscientists BC is pleased to invite you to the 2018 Mentoring Program's Mix and Mingle event. Come meet with other mentors and mentees and share your experiences. This event will include a presentation about how to develop reciprocal mentorship relationships. Light refreshments and appetizers will be provided after the presentation. A cash bar will also be available.

This event is open to all program participants whether you are matched or not, as well as individuals who are not currently part of the mentoring program. Please note, this event will be held in Vancouver. Although some of our program participants may not reside in the lower mainland, we would like to notify you in case you will be in town.

Presentation Topic

Very often, mentoring is left to the luck of the draw or chance. It is often assumed that mentors and mentees know how to approach and work with each other, but that isn't always the case. Mentees often wonder what they can ask for and mentors often wonder, “what is in this for me?” Our intention is to help the group get to know one another and create relationships that are reciprocal in nature to ensure that there is something in it for all participants in this mentoring culture. Get your business cards ready and be prepared to ask for the skills you seek to develop and prepared to offer skills that can help others.
