Mentorship: The Low-Down and the Meet-Up

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Oprah Winfrey has described a mentor as someone who allows you to see the hope inside yourself, and that insight is important at every stage of a career. Learn about the value of a mentorship (and a reverse mentorship), what to expect out of a mentorship, and how to develop a mentor-mentee relationship. Then speed-connect with fellow GIS professionals to help build your network and see if there’s a mentorship in the making.

Panelists to include: 
  • Christina Boggs-Chavira, Engineering Geologist, California Department of Water Resources in the Data Publication, Exchange and Management Section
  • Melisa Caric Lee, President, Compass Rose GIS, and President-Elect, SoCal URISA
  • Kara Utter, Vanguard Cabinet
