PNCWA is rolling out a new mentorship program for its members to encourage mentors to pass on their wealth of knowledge and experience to help protégés develop valuable professional goals. PNCWA will provide a packet of mentoring materials, and will match mentors and protégés based on shared interests, profession, and region.
After mentors and protégés are matched, they will confirm the selection, commit to their partnership, and then the mentoring can begin! They are encouraged to meet for at least an hour every other month. It is up to the mentor and protégé to determine what they would like to talk about and what they would like to develop (e.g., list of goals, career map).
To register as a mentor or protégé, simply take the online survey of work experience, fields of interest, type of company/agency, career track(s), and region. Already, 70 PNCWA Members have taken the survey, so this first year will be very successful.
Protégés, please remember to thank your mentor and any other senior members you know who are volunteering their time and experience to help support your career development. This is a great opportunity that speaks loudly to the high quality of our member organization and the community we have developed.
