Asana & Techqueria Partner to Support Latinx Engineering Mentorship #HispanicHeritageMonth #LatinxHeritageMonth
Asana and the Latinx tech community-building non-profit Techqueria have put together a panel of engineers to speak to over 100 Latinx engineering professionals from around the country to foster mentoring relationships. Here’s more from Asana Blog:
In order to develop a thriving mentor-mentee relationship, you need support and encouragement from within a community. That’s why, earlier this year, we partnered with Techqueria for our first of many Latinx engineering mentorship panels. The panelists came from a variety of roles within the engineering tech sphere, and they each brought a wealth of mentor and mentee experience to the panel. Here’s what they had to say about mentorship:
“The defining characteristic of a mentorship relationship is very much learning and sharing [your] experiences. I think we often see this as a mentor who is more advanced in their career and mentoring someone more junior in their role. But mentorship also takes a lot of different shapes. [For example] I’ve gotten a lot of value out of peer mentorships.” – Alvaro Morales, Engineering Manager at Asana
