Mentoring Millennials: Evolving Practices for Guiding a New Generation of Women Engineers to Career
Mentoring Millennials: Evolving practices for guiding a new generation of women engineers to career success. Millennial students differ from their predecessors in important ways that can assist us in recruiting and retaining more women in engineering. For example, millennial students, male and female, are genuinely interested in making a difference in the world. Using initiatives such as the NAE's Grand Challenges for Engineering, we can clearly link engineering with that desire to make a difference.
