A Successful 2018 Inaugural Program

The highly requested and inaugural employee mentoring program, MentorTech: Professional Partnerships, successfully concluded its debut. The program received overwhelming interest from campus, and as a result, accepted 142 Institute employees into mentor/mentee professional partnerships. The six-month program kicked off in February and collectively the pairs invested more than 1,140 hours in the program and each other.

Georgia Tech Human Resources (GTHR) is exceptionally proud of partners' commitment to the program and the stories they shared.
