Discover mentorship program at upcoming brown bags
The UCOP Mentorship Program pairs experienced leaders and professionals from across OP departments with staff who seek to develop themselves professionally. While mentees in the nine-month program enjoy a supportive environment in which to expand their professional networks, increase self-awareness and discipline, and receive position and constructive feedback on their career development, mentors have the opportunity to translate values and strategies into actions, gain insights and alternative perspectives about other areas of the university, practice coaching skills and garner support for the university’s mission and goals.
Come hear more about the program at three brown bag sessions, which will be held from noon to 1 p.m. at the following locations:
- July 16: Franklin 12322
- July 17: Kaiser 612
- July 20: 20th Street 411
Who can participate?
Mentors must be experienced managers and professionals who have been at UC for at least two years and at OP for at least one year.
Mentees must be career staff who have been employed at UC or UCOP for at least a year.
