To find mentors who are women or minorities for recent graduates in entry-level construction positions, consider these tips: 

1. Connect with professional associations or organizations that focus on promoting diversity and inclusion in the construction industry.

2. Attend networking events, conferences, and workshops specifically designed for women or minority professionals in construction.

3. Reach out to local chapters of organizations like the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) or the National Association of Minority Contractors (NAMC).

4. Utilize online platforms and forums dedicated to connecting mentors and mentees in the construction field.

5. Seek referrals from colleagues, professors, or career counselors who may have connections to diverse professionals in construction.

6. Leverage social media platforms to engage with and follow influential women or minority leaders in the construction industry who may be open to mentoring.

7. Approach construction companies with established diversity and inclusion programs to inquire about mentorship opportunities.

Remember to be proactive, persistent, and respectful in your search for mentors, and be prepared to clearly articulate your goals and aspirations in the construction industry.
