Huizenga Business School Starts Mentorship Program

During the 2010 summer term, the Graduate Business Student Association (GBSA) began a partnership with the Commercial Real Estate Women (CREW) of Fort Lauderdale and Palm Beach to develop a six-month mentorship program. Twelve graduate students were paired with CREW members based on interests and career goals.

To kick off the program, the GBSA hosted a lunch with CREW board members on July 22, including Debra Kremblas, executive vice president of Procacci Development Corporation; Traci Miller, director of business development for Miller Construction; and Patricia Werhahn, leasing executive at Weingarten Realty. The board members gave a presentation titled, “Maximize Your Networking Potential.” View the presentation online here: www.huizenga.nova.edu/CurrentStudents/Organizations/ (click “Watch Past Presentation Videos”).

In addition to the lunch, an official Orientation Breakfast Meeting was held where students learned about the mentorship process, and the goals and expectations of the program. They were given material to guide them in selecting specific goals to provide a framework for success. Areas included establishing short and long term career goals, improving networking skills, and polishing other vital business abilities.

Students will meet with their mentors at least six times, and the program will culminate with a dinner in January. Special thanks go to Patricia Werhahn, CREW board member; Carla Withrow, GBSA faculty advisor; and the GBSA members and greet panel.
