Become a Mentor/Mentee with our Mentorship Program!
Did you know we offer a mentorship program with cohorts running from October to June each year? It’s a terrific opportunity to invest in your professional development through a rewarding mentorship relationship with fellow communicators in our local community.
The call for applications for the 2018-2019 cohort is open until October 12, 2018.
For mentors, it’s a chance to share your professional insight, expand your mentee’s network, act as a sounding board and assist your mentee in setting developmental goals.
For mentees, it’s an opportunity to learn and grow in your career, with support and counsel from a senior communications professional.
How do I get involved?
1. Submit your application form.
We aim to match mentorship pairs based on interests, skill sets and professional development goals outlined during the application process.
2. Stay tuned for the announcement of the new 2018-2019 cohort.
Participation in the program is subject to availability. Submitting an application does not guarantee a spot in the 2018-2019 cohort. We will notify all successful applicants in mid to late October 2018.
3. Meet your mentor/mentee and fellow participants at our kick-off event in mid-fall.
From there, continue your mentorship relationship at your own convenience.
The program provides resources to help guide the mentorship cycle, and the program officially wraps up with another event in late spring.
