APPLICATION - 2020 PMIWDC Mentoring Program
Thank you for your interest in the 2020 PMIWDC Mentoring Program. The program is a one-on-one relationship between a Mentor and Protégé. Selected protégé applicants will be matched with mentors that can best support their leadership, technical and strategic development needs. The program also provides mentorship for Military applicants who want to be paired with a mentor with a military background.
Each mentor-protégé pair will establish and build a foundation for a successful mentoring relationship with learning and development at its core and the fulfillment of clear mutually defined goals as its intention.
The mentoring pairs will agree on the goals of their partnership and the frequency of their mentoring meetings. They will complete a mentoring partnership agreement and develop a Mentoring Action Plan that translates goals into easily executable and attainable steps.
