Testimony from 2015 Leadership and Mentoring Program participants:

  • An opportunity to develop leadership skills with an intimate group of Young Members while getting unprecedented face time with civilian and military leaders.
  • Provided me with condensed, focused sessions on leadership, mentorship, and networking with civilian and military senior leaders to hear their nuggets of wisdom.
  • Gave me the opportunity to make connections with each speaker, learn about their journey, and insight to better balance my work and personal life.
  • The lab helped me to understand the importance of taking initiative in all areas of your life and to get to know a group of people who I did not know before.
  • Open my leadership aperture; network and build friendships; develop critical thinking and public speaking skills; understand more deeply the mission of SAME and lifelong learning.
  • Unbelievable opportunity to interact in a meaningful way with a cross-section of your military and civilian peers while learning from accomplished senior leaders across the A/E/C community.
