    We are excited to invite you to join a special Mentor Chat September 26 & 27 here in Connexion +. The 2022 SAE President and Board Chair, @Srinivasa Srinath, made mentoring one of his presidential focus areas, and he is looking forward to discussing why mentoring is important with other SAE Members and volunteers.

    You can join the discussion in 2 ways:

    1. Submit your responses to Sri's starter questions ahead of time. The Community Manager will then post your answers on your behalf during the Chat. 

    2. Join the discussion thread yourself between September 26 - 27.



    And if you haven't enrolled in the SAE Mentor Program yet, you can learn how to do so here. This is the place to share and learn technical knowledge, industry experience, and leadership skills with other SAE Members.

    Sri shares why it is important to find a mentor, regardless of what stage of your career you are in. "[Mentors] can see things that we cannot see ourselves, and they can give us some insights to correct, to get better, to improve. And life is all about continuous improvement."

    How do you break the ice and approach a mentor?

    "All you have to do is ask. Just walk up and say 'hey, I would like to spend some time with you, I would like to pick your brain, I would like to get your perspectives on things'...[P]eople are just more than willing and able and ready to assist..." Sri adds "Nothing bad is going to ever come out of asking for this help."


    Join Sri September 26 & 27 to discuss the importance of mentoring here. Or, contribute to the discussion ahead of time

    Couldn't agree more with this approach to mentoring! Everyone is always willing to help out; it never hurts to ask!

    Last reminder to join SAE's 2022 President and Board Chair, Sri Srinath, September 26 & 27 to discuss the importance of mentoring.

    2 ways to participate:
    1. Join the discussion online here or
    2. Submit your responses ahead of time here, to be posted by the Community Manager on your behalf. 

    We recognize that everyone is busy, students and professionals alike. And sometimes it seems like one more thing will not fit into your schedules. But Sri talks about time management. "[W]hat are the things that you want to make time for? From a time management perspective, if mentoring is important...then you'll find a way to make time."
