GISMO Meeting

GIS Mentoring Event

Thursday, May 2, 2019

5:30-7:30 PM @ Hunter College, 695 Park Ave, Room 1028 North

Join us for an evening of GISMO 25<meets>65. This event is based on a similar (successful) event staged by the Alumni Association at Cooper Union. A group of 50 year+ alumni (class of 1963 Engineering) were brought together for a lunch with current seniors for a “grandparent”/”grandchild” conversation.

GISMO 25<meets>65 will take place over light refreshments, where a group of 6-10 veteran GISMO members over 65 and 12-20 current student members will gather together to:

  1.     Using 3-5 minutes, each senior GISMO member relates his/her intellectual career path from age 25 through the present stressing:
    • Hindsight on critical decision-making in their lives
    • How they found their way into GIS
    • Evolution of GIS/career and its rewards
  2.     Q/A between seniors (~ 20 minutes)
  3.     Pairs of students converse with each individual senior in a “speed-dating” format. (~ 5 minutes each)
  4.     Encourage exchange of contact information where future communication or mentoring may be of help for students.

Limited seating. Reservations will be on a first come, first serve basis. To reserve a seat, please RSVP online. Direct questions to Amy Jeu at ajeu@hunter.cuny.edu .

Please help us to circulate to all GIS students and senior / veteran GISers. Many thanks!
