Last Chance to Join 2017 PNCWA Mentorship Program

Calling all future mentors and protégés! PNCWA's mentoring program, which encourages members to connect with and learn from one another, wants you to join! PNCWA provides a mentoring guide and matches mentors and protégés based on shared interests, profession, and region. The program gives mentors an opportunity to pass on their wealth of knowledge and experience to help protégés develop professional skills and goals. 

The survey for the 2017 mentoring program survey closes May 1, 2017. We will begin pairing soon thereafter. After mentors and protégés are matched, they will confirm the selection, commit to their partnership, and then the mentoring can begin! Teams 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). Mentor/protégé teams are encouraged to meet up at the 2017 PNCWA Annual Conference in October.
