Honoring Our Colleagues

We cannot teach people anything; we can only help them discover it within themselves.             -- Galileo

January is National Mentor Month in the United States.  As OSA's global headquarters in located in the USA, we wanted to take advantage of this celebration to highlight our worldwide community of mentors and mentees.  Each day in January we will highlight a tribute posted to our "Honor Your Mentor" program on osa.org and social media.  

The Honor Your Mentor program allows members of the optics and photonics community an opportunity to publicly recognize someone who has served as a mentor. The goal of the program is to honor great mentors and remind us all of the impact mentorship can have on our careers and lives.
