Annina Hogan, PE, RA, CME, LEED-AP, Executive Vice President of RVE was chosen as one of 40 mentors for the Philadelphia Business Journal’s (PBJ) BizWoman Mentoring Monday Event, held on February 12, 2018, at the Crystal Tea Room in Philadelphia, PA. This event is one of 43 that is being held by Business Journals all over the country involving about 8,600 women who will be mentored and another 1,700 women mentors. That means nearly 10,000 of the best and brightest women from Albany to Honolulu are taking part in strengthening the community of strong business women in America.
The event offered the opportunity to choose from 40 mentors who are the most influential women in the business community for one-on-one coaching sessions for seven minute conversations. The attendees will stand in line and wait for a particular mentor or move to the next mentor available. This will allow the attendees to network with each other while they are waiting, which is just as important as the coaching sessions. We expect every attendee to have the opportunity to meet between one and seven mentors. The quick turnaround is organized chaos which will be fast, fun and fulfilling as everyone gets the chance to meet new people and gain new insights.
Annina was named as RVE’s first female principal in 2016 after nearly two decades of exemplifying leadership, innovation and technical management in the municipal and education sectors. As Executive Vice President, she serves as the head of the firm’s Municipal Engineering & Planning Department, as well as Engineer of Record to more than 24 school districts throughout New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
