JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas – Civilian leaders will host the “Soaring to New Heights: a Leadership Perspective” virtual mentorship panel, Sept. 14 at 9 to 10:30 a.m. CDT.


The event is hosted by Air Education and Training Command’s Mentoring Council, which is composed of Airmen from around the command, and will allow the panelists to share their personal perspectives on mentoring and the impact it has made on their lives and career progression.


The panelists are: Kimberley Toney, executive director at the Air Force Personnel Center; Amy Graveley, director of logistics, engineering and force protection at Headquarters AETC; and Brian Roush, director of the 502nd Force Support Squadron.  


The panelists will introduce tools that Total Force members can use for their professional and personal growth, and to better understand the benefits of mentoring in their development. Additionally, participants will have the opportunity to ask panelists questions during the event.


“This panel is the third mentorship event AETC’s Mentoring Council has hosted this year,” said Robert Fishback, AETC civilian force development specialist and the event’s point of contact. “It follows a hugely successful two-day leadership mentoring symposium held in late January, and an event featuring Chief Master Sergeant of the Air Force JoAnne Bass in late May.”


Registration for the event is open to all Total Force members. To register and to get the event link, e-mail Registration closes Sept. 10 and is limited to 1,000 people.
