Shape the future through mentoring!
In 2022, IEEE-HKN launched a pilot Professional – Graduate Student Mentoring Program to forge closer ties between alumni/professional members and graduate students across our organization. The pilot program supported 14 graduate students and 9 mentors and quickly became one of HKN’s most rewarding programs.
What is unique about joining the HKN Mentoring Initiative is you are fully supported by a team of dedicated volunteers to pair mentors and mentees, mitigate any issues that may arise and ensure you are getting the most out of this opportunity. Mentors and mentees also formalized their goals by signing a Mentoring Agreement which includes agreed upon meeting times and topics to cover which ranges from how to build a start-up to how to evaluate post-graduation job offers.
Now, we are expanding our initiative and looking for dedicated mentors and enthusiastic mentees who are looking to build a stronger future together.
