The PMIWDC Mentoring Program was created to facilitate the development and enhancement of project management competencies for the Chapter members. The goal of the program is to provide Chapter members with the opportunity to both share experiences and develop project management skills in a chosen area or industry.
The PMIWDC Mentoring Program is a members-only program. The program is a one-on-one relationship between a seasoned PMP professional and a developing project management professional to develop the skills needed to meet the evolving demands of our profession.
The program is voluntary, and is governed by formal guidelines and goals designed to provide structure to the mentor protégé relationship.
During the six-month formal program duration, the Mentor Protégé pair will agree on the protégé’s learning goals and objectives; develop a mentoring action plan to accomplish those goals; and work towards achieving those goals.
A program coordination team provides oversight to the program. Participants are encouraged to take part in web-base mentoring training and directed to selected mentoring guides that are “toolboxes” of articles, activities, templates and how-to’s for the mentoring program participants.
The PMIWDC Mentoring Program also contains a military transition component. This provides veterans, interested in joining the program management profession, the opportunity to be paired with a mentor with a military background.
2020 PMIWDC Mentoring Program application period for both mentors and protégés will be 6 January 2020 - 7 February 2020. The formal program period is April – September.
