In the Society's continuing commitment to support mentoring as a vital and valuable professional service, a series of mentor-mentee luncheons will be held during the Annual Meeting to assist students, early-career professionals, and those in career transition to develop mentoring relationships with established professionals in the field. The luncheons will be held during the lunch breaks on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, October 29-31. Complimentary lunch will be provided to attendees.
Celebrating its 15th year, this luncheon series has provided mentoring opportunities for more than 1000 HFES members. Previous participants have included some of the Society's most distinguished members, with representatives from top companies and universities. We expect many such professionals to join us this year, with different ones participating each day. The theme for Wednesday's luncheon will be user experience, targeting students and professionals interested in design and usability.
To keep the luncheons intimate and informal, attendance will be limited to 20 students or new professionals and 5 mentors per session. To reserve your place, complete the online registration form at: MentorMenteeLuncheonHFES2019
