Reminder: Seeking mentors and mentees for mentoring program

The Employee Advisory Group and the Office of Professional Development are pleased to announce the launch of the Fermilab mentoring pilot. The pilot program will provide a professional development opportunity for lab employees who elect to become mentees or mentors and who are interested in ongoing learning.

Mentees will receive guidance in navigating their professional development and careers, while mentors will gain new perspectives on the lab and discover diverse ideas by engaging mentees. The pilot is open to those either seeking to mentor or those seeking to be a mentee, as well as individuals who are currently in a mentoring relationship.

To participate as a mentee you must have a strong desire to learn. Mentors must have a strong interest in developing others, coupled with a desire for shared learning.

The mentoring pilot will roll out in the following phases:

August: Mentees and mentors applications accepted

September: Matching mentee and mentor pairs

October: Mentee and mentor orientations

October 2016 through September 2017: Duration of the mentoring pilot.

Since this is a pilot, there will be a limited number of participants in the initial cohort. Applicants who are not selected for the pilot will have first consideration in the next cohort.

To learn more about the mentoring pilot, please visit the mentoring website. Mentor and mentee profiles can be submitted through September 1.
