Description

The subject of mentoring is often suggested in professional environments but as industry professionals have recently discovered, mentoring students in middle and high school can significantly increase the potential for successful career paths. As the lead for the Women In Technology at Samsung (WITS) Mentor Ring program, I am experienced in both identifying and partnering mentors and mentees for successful relationships professionally and personally. 

Key Questions

1) What is a mentor?

2) What is a coach?

3) Why are mentors needed at an early age? What is the benefit?

4) What defines a "good mentor"?

5) Can you have more than one mentor?

6) Can you change mentors as you progress?

7) Why is mentoring beneficial for students and professionals?

Expected Outcomes

At the end of the session, attendees will have a clear understanding of what mentoring is and why starting early is the key. We will discuss the roadmap to identifying good mentors and how to approach/seek them out and determine best practices to continue the partnership between mentee/mentor.
