MEDA Mentorship Connection - Mentors
There are emerging leaders that are eager to learn from you!
Help build a future leader so they can gain the knowledge and insight that is needed for success in the field.
Ideas for Connecting With a Mentee
Being a mentor does not have to take up a large amount of your time.
Here are some ideas:
- Allow them to job shadow with you for a day
- Connect on LinkedIn and chat
- Meet for lunch
- Schedule a phone call
What to Know First
- The program must facilitate a mutually fulfilling relationship between the mentees and the mentors wherein both parties serve as beneficiary and contributor.
- Act as an advocate for promoting and recruiting other professionals.
- There must be direct interaction with mentees. Sitting behind a desk processing paperwork is not an acceptable Mentorship Connection program activity.
How to Become a Mentor
