The Workplace Learning & Professional Development team congratulates the 96 participants who dedicated over 800 hours between February and August to their professional partnerships. We thank you for your dedication to stay the course and invest your time and talents in each other. We hope your experience was both challenging and rewarding. You all are truly creating a legacy of leadership. New to the program this year, we also celebrate our Mentor of the Year, Alex Gutierrez and Mentee of the Year, Adrian Williams. Kudos to each of you for stretching your limits and your professional partner’s, and for being recognized by your peers as exceptional in your roles.

Mentor of the Year: Alex Guitierrez

Mentee of the Year: Adrian Williams

We hope to see you next year!

The MentorTech program has officially closed for the year, but we believe your professional partnerships are just getting started. We recommend you keep the conversation going, continue to enrich the relationship through meaningful dialogue and challenge each other’s thinking. We invite you to apply next year, tell a friend about the mentoring program, and continue to pay it forward through mentorship. The campus has unlimited opportunities for you to create the next. Registration will open in January 2020.
