Professional Architect Mentoring Series

In order to foster Emerging Professionals' success; increase professional enthusiasm; attract and retain talented, diverse and committed architects; and perpetuate a thriving profession, the AIA Young Architects Forum and College of Fellows are sponsoring the development of a new, easy-to-participate webinar series to foster mentoring in the profession.

The mentoring program is directed to firm and organization leaders, unlicensed professionals, young architects, and current and potential trainers and mentors to help them understand what mentoring is and how to establish successful mentoring programs. The program will provide established practitioners with the skills and tools to act as mentors and career coaches to young licensed professionals and unlicensed interns.

The Professional Architect Mentoring Series comprises an initial series of four, 90-minute web-based seminars covering four topics; ‘Getting Work,’ ‘Operating Profitably,’ ‘Doing Good Work,’ ‘Talent and Culture.’ Each webinar will help mentors and mentees deal with a topic, rather than train on the topic itself. The emphasis of each webinar is to guide mentors and mentees in helping mentees acquire skills and shape a career path that is consistent with their interests and career goals while also being consistent with the needs and goals of the firms in which they are members.

Continuing Education learning units (or credits) can be obtained for viewing the webinar series via one of two ways; signing up and viewing the live webcast, or viewing the archived webcast and completing the accompanying quiz. Only one of the viewing options is necessary to obtain the 1.5 CEUs available. In order to schedule to view the live webcast or view the archived webcast and complete the accompanying quiz, you must create a user profile via the webinar site.
