Mentor Lunch Supports Women in Engineering

Mentor Lunch Supports Women in Engineering

Engineering Faculty member Cheri Markt arranged for Cañada students to connect with women in the Engineering profession at a Mentor Lunch. The lunch, held on April 20, was an opportunity for women Engineering students to practice networking with women who are in the professional Engineering field.  The students and professionals met one-on-one for five minutes each, and then rotated to a new mentor.  Eight students and six professionals attended the event, including an Aerospace Engineer from NASA, Civil Engineers from Hensel Phelps and Computer Scientists from Oracle. There, students were able to ask questions about what the professionals studied in school, how they found their first job in industry, learned about what the day-to-day experience is like in a variety of fields.  Students were also provided with business cards to hand out during the event and some of the professionals were ready to hire!
