Speed Mentoring

We will be hosting a “speed mentoring event”, where attendance will be capped to 300 students per session. There will be tables, food and drinks. Mentors will sit at tables (with 8-10 students each) and will hold an informal discussion on a particular topic (see a preview of some of the current mentors and topics below).

You will get to meet with Senior Faculty and Industry Leaders to discuss topics of interest to students! You must register in advance to attend, and attendance is capped. If the event is full, you can join a waitlist, but you should select another event. This is a mentor event curated by our Social Activities Chairs and is meant for networking with Senior Advisors and Industry leaders.

Please log into your registration to select a session if you are interested.

Go here (https://na.eventscloud.com/ereg/index.php?eventid=722171&)  and select modify. You will need the email address and confirmation number from registration.

Go to AGENDA and look at the STUDENT SOCIALS. Click on ONE session. If you will be selected (first come first serve basis), you will receive an email with details on the session and a ticket to print to attend it. Only selected students will be notified with the ticket.

Please contact the Social Activities Chairs with any questions regarding the Speed Mentoring event: Giovanni Maria Farinella <giovanni.farinella@unict.it> and Angel Chang <angel_xuan_chang@sfu.ca>.
