The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat is extending its application due date for its “global future leaders” mentoring pilot project “due to an overwhelming response,” CTBUH says. The new deadline is April 28.

The mission of the program—open to all, not only CTBUH members—is to help the next generation of architects, engineers and construction professionals develop leadership skills by connecting a mentee with a construction industry executive who can share insights from experience, according to the group. CTBUH is recommending a voluntary six-month commitment with monthly sessions, each lasting 45 minutes to one hour.

Together, mentees and mentors will determine goals to address during their sessions. Both will be expected to share feedback with the program. 

Potential mentors should have more than 20 years of experience in the industry. The ideal mentor would not only share insights and lessons, they would provide support and constructive feedback. Mentees would be young professionals who have less than than 10 years in the indsutry. The goal is for mentees to be able to articulate the kind of support they need and be open to feedback.
