Here are just a few of the groups you can participate in:
Nancy Tuor, group president and corporate sponsor for Sustainability, has been named to the Profiles in Diversity Journal's Women Worth Watching list for 2011. The ninth annual list is featured in the Diversity Journal's fall issue, which highlights women who have worked for the advancement of women into senior leadership positions.
In response to questions asked by the Diversity Journal regarding mentoring, Nancy shared, "As a mentor, I try to help people get focused on what they really want to do. It's important to help mentees identify what activities they enjoy doing rather than the job title they think they want."
After graduating from Portland State University, Nancy started her career in the 1970s as an administrative assistant in a small engineering firm. Her path to success has developed from learning to play to her strengths and managing her weaknesses, while helping the team she leads accomplish a job that best meets the client's needs. "The most significant obstacle I overcame in my career, especially in the beginning, was being a non-engineer in an engineering firm."
"My advice is to really be introspective and self-aware—learn to play to your strengths and manage your weaknesses. For example, I'm not a technical person, but I have a technical aptitude and I use this to give the teams I lead the leverage and resources they need to get the job done. I'm also not a micromanager. I would much rather set the vision, get the right team and help them get the job done."
