American Society of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS) Young Professionals Council (YPC) Mentoring Program: The Beta

Editor's Notes

  1. I could not have done this alone. I had the support of multiple committee members, many of whom you see here (Hui; Amr; Devin; and Patrick) and several of whom could not be here today. Specifically, Alex Ubban. And, of course, the mentors and mentees. It is amazing to see the responses.Just like the mentoring program, I want this session to be very flexible. I want to encourage participation so please stop me if you have questions. I will start with a quick overview of the make up of the mentors and mentees, talk about the survey and Again, I cannot stress that the structure of this special session is informal and meant to help the YPC take the mentoring program to the next level.I will be giving out drink tickets for the social tonight for those who participate. Yes, I am bribing you!
  2. Quick background: Headquarters sent out a blast e-mail on June 24 with our surveys. They also took out ads in PE&RS. We waited a while to gather responses and then started the mentoring match making in August 2013. Two of us took the mentors and mentees and came up with completely different matches in every case. This was perfect because we had a great ratio of mentors to mentees.
  3. Each mentee received two mentors. Which worked really well, I think. It means we will be able to sell the program based on access to exceptional mentors.
  4. Here’s a list of the questions the forms asked. You can see the mentors were asked about employers but mentees were not. While Mentees were asked about membership.
  5. I was overwhelmed by the immediate response. I will need to update this graph because I have convinced many people to participate at the conference.
  6. Again, it is great to see that we have more mentees than mentors.
  7. The division break down is a tough one because many active members are associated with multiple divisions. But, clearly I have to recruit GISD mentors.
  8. Many people want to be matched spatially. But, we have regions without mentees, so this was very difficult to do.
  9. Most people were willing to spend 5 hours a month, second being As much time as needed.
  10. We were pretty well split on the different interests. This was a multiple-selection area for both mentors and mentees.
  11. Most of our mentors come from the private sector, but government was second.
  12. I love that no one said that mentoring would cause them not to join ASPRS. And, most of our participants were students. We did have those who were not members, but they are basically going to be forced to join once the beta is over.
  13. I’m not going to read the questions to you, but I am going to ask you to read them and see if we can improve any. Same goes for the mentoring “sign up” forms.
  14. Most responders had contacted their “partner” and many had contacted them many times!
  15. (and google links are evil) But if you can’t get this, you can find the links on our ASPRS web page. Navigate to that page through Organization > Young Professional’s Council and then go to our Initiatives (under Mentoring).
