    Hi Everybody,

    I received the following message from Baron Summers who is trying to get information about HFES mentoring activities. If you have mentoring activities and have not responded, please consider doing so.

    Subject: Mentoring activities within HFES Technical Groups

    Hi Matthew,

    I am the chair of the mentorship committee that was activated in 2020.  A link to the following spreadsheet was at least supposed to be sent out by HFES leadership to all of those below them in the org chart towards the end of 2020.  We are trying to understand what is happening in regards to mentoring currently and where we need to make enhancements for our membership. The spreadsheet is where HFES committees & groups can help provide information about if any mentoring activities are being conducted and if so some details.  So far only two TGs have made an entry.  The org chart does not show the individual TG chairs and many TG websites are out of date.  Can you please send this to the TG chairs (except Healthcare & Perception and Performance which have already participated) and ask them to complete it by January 29, 2021.   Thank you so much!

    Very Respectfully,

    Baron C Summers, PhD
