This attestation gives me access to PHM Society Members-only benefits for a 5 year period provided I remain a member in good standing.

3. PHMentor

The importance of mentorship on person’s career can be profound. A mentor can be someone who is further along in their career/education, someone who is at the same point in their career/education but is having different outcomes, or someone who possesses a skill (examples: system engineering, fault detection and isolation, program management, sensing systems, materials) or has a specific trait (examples: conflict resolution, decision making process, research and development planning, academic direction, diversity and inclusion) you would like to achieve for yourself.  The PHM Society attracts and serves participants from across academia, industry, government, and defense who are at various stages of their education and careers. We can leverage and build this diversity of participants to share insights and lessons learned as we mentor one another to achieve the next higher level of ourselves.

The PHMentor program was announced at the 2021 Annual Conference and now it is time to move forward with this program. We welcome participation at different levels and with different topics as you are able. If you are interested in participating in this program as either a Mentor or a Mentee, please contact mentoring@phmsociety.org.

Additional information will be provided as we build out this exciting new program.
