This panel discussion was recorded at the IEEE Women in Engineering East Forum on 2 December 2017. 

Abstract: Mentoring and knowledge transfer continue to gain importance as current industry experts retire and the next generation of technical professionals enters the workforce.

Topics include identifying mentors/mentees, formal versus informal programs, what is unique to female mentoring, and how to successfully perpetuate knowledge transfer. As there is no one prescribed path to mentor/mentee success, this forum will provide options for all engineering professionals to consider as they progress in their careers.
