Binnie’s Mentoring Program
Binnie has a Mentoring Program which is open to all staff. We have participants at the junior, intermediate, and senior levels and offer Mentoring Information Sessions to staff who are interested in participating. Land Development Engineer, Geneve started at Binnie after graduating from the UBC Civil Engineering program and has since completed the Engineer in Training program and received her Professional Engineer designation:
I joined the mentoring program when I first started at Binnie. My Mentor shared his experiences of his career path, growth and development over the years with me and we would set goals to stay on track for my own career development. I found it very beneficial and rewarding to have someone who has been through the path to give me pointers and direction over the past few years.
