Honoring Our Mentors

Help celebrate #MentoringMonth this January by sharing a story of someone who has impacted your career!

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.

Your donation will fund future professional development, mentoring and networking programs for our early career professionals and students through the our Annual Fund.

Mentor tributes will be posted to our recognition board below, along with being shared to the our Twitter account @OpticalSociety. Note that you may honor someone deceased or living. Multiple mentors may also be honored with separate donations.
