Mentoring Pathways

    Enrollment in Our Award-Winning Mentoring Pathways Program is closed and due to reopen in Fall 2020. 

    About Mentoring Pathways 

    Mentoring Pathways is designed to promote long-term leadership and career development through a one-on-one mentor-protégé relationship in conjunction with bi-monthly group workshops. Successful mentoring involves a dynamic process where each participant learns to respect and trust their partner’s commitment, expertise, and individuality. A firm commitment to the mentoring process and a willingness to invest time and energy are important components for a successful relationship and a rewarding program experience.


    Protégés have the opportunity to grow from their mentor’s experience with guidance and support.

    • If you’re ready for the next step in your career and are looking for guidance to make it happen.
    • If you’ve taken on a new role and need advice or guidance to be successful.
    • If you’re new to the industry and looking for someone to guide and support you.
    • If you want to take advantage of our chapter’s best assets - our experts - to learn from their experiences and grow your network.


    Mentors share their experiences and advice on such topics as career advancement, practice strategies, professional visibility, networking and overcoming barriers to career success.

    • Share your expertise and reap the benefits from knowing you played a role in boosting another’s career.
    • Share knowledge about developing a career path in the A/E/C industry.
    • Help a protégé to identify gaps in skills or experience that inhibit their current job or from moving to the next level commensurate with career goals.
    • Provide insight into the influence of politics and corporate culture on the protégé’s job and career path.
    • Share knowledge and experiences about common mistakes/pitfalls to aid the protégé to succeed.
