Join us for an evening of conversation and networking around the theme of mentorship. How can individuals working in the environmental field support each other? This question is of particular importance given the current economic downturn; the work we do is as important as ever, yet there seem to be fewer clear career opportunities. We can all benefit from hearing the experiences of others: their successes, their biggest obstacles, and what they have learned along the way. We can inspire others with our own stories. No matter what level of experience or career success we’ve reached, we can all be mentors.
A light dinner consisting of vegetarian appetizers and finger foods will be served. Coffee and water will also be available.
In preparation for the event, think about the following questions:
- Name an individual in the field that you admire. Why? What are the qualities that set them apart?
- What advice would you give an individual just starting out in your field?
- What information would you most like to have from someone in your field who is 10 years (more?) older than you?
- Describe a work experience where you felt it was an advantage (or disadvantage) to be woman (or man).
