Become a mentor or mentee: final brown bag this week
If you’re looking for a way to get beyond your day-to-day work duties and relationships to expand your network, explore new career opportunities and develop a better understanding of UCOP, the Mentorship Program might be just what you’re looking for.
Find out what it’s like to participate as either a mentee or mentor at the final brown bag, 12 to 1 p.m. this Thursday, July 25, in 612 Kaiser. Past mentors and mentees will be there to describe their experiences and answer your questions about the program.
The 2013–14 Mentorship Program is a great opportunity to get more out of your UCOP career and meet new colleagues at all levels of the organization. Introduced in the spring of 2011, the all-volunteer program matches experienced OP leaders in one-on-one relationships with career staff who want to develop themselves both personally and professionally.
Mentors and mentees in each pairing work out their own meeting schedule and set goals, which vary widely depending on each mentee’s personal and professional needs.
Mentee applications are due 5 p.m. Friday, Aug. 9, 2013. Find more details on the UCOP Mentorship Program website, including mentee eligibility, applications and answers to common questions.
