About this talk

Zweig Group’s 2021 ElevateHER cohort who have been working in special 6-month long task force groups will present their project findings at this symposium, bringing brand new, tangible, solutions to the industry.

MentHER Match proposes to develop the foundation for a web-based mentor-mentee matching service that will broaden the scope of available mentoring by removing enlarging the pool of mentors, removing the inherent conflicts typically encountered when mentors and mentees belong to the same company, and, at full roll-out, providing an automated, algorithm-based matching protocol analogous to common dating services. There is an identified need for mentoring of women and other minorities in the AEC industry to prevent the “pipeline leak” that results in the steady decrease in representation of these classes throughout the track of a career. Our solution will increase the pool of available mentors across a wider range of mentees than is typically available in any given firm. By including the entire AEC industry and negating geographic impediments to the mentor-mentee relationship, MentHER Match allows for mentees to connect with people at every stage of their career.
