Think about a time in your life when you were involved, in some way, with mentoring. Maybe you were a student, grappling with a question, seeking guidance and you found someone whom inspired and empowered you. Maybe you were a professor or an advisor, and you could see clearly that something you did for a student or a younger colleague gave the boost they needed to persevere and overcome an obstacle and move forward on their career paths.
Whether as the mentor or the person being mentored, we’ve all experienced occasions when for whatever reason – timing, chemistry, opportunity – good counsel made a big difference. We also remember the not-so-good mentoring, when we were disappointed by an advisor or by the inability of someone to accept our help, no matter how hard we tried. We’ve known good and bad mentors and because of those experiences we begin to understand what does and doesn’t work.
At this very special event, the METal community will share their stories of mentors and the advise that change their lives. Each speaker will have 10 minutes to mentor the community with their mentor's wisdom.
