UCOP Mentorship Program: Applications will open soon!
The UCOP Mentorship Program will once again soon be seeking mentees and mentors for its next annual program, taking place from September 2022 through June 2023. This is an exciting opportunity to share and learn career skills and leadership practices, guide and navigate the UCOP culture and establish long-term professional relationships. The 2022-23 program will be available in person or virtually to meet the needs of all participants.
The goal of the UCOP Mentorship Program is to create mentor-mentee pairings that provide a supportive structure for employees to cultivate contacts, explore challenges and enhance their effectiveness as they grow personally and professionally.
Interested in becoming a mentee?
Employees who have been at UCOP for six months or more are eligible to participate as mentees. Applications will be available later this month and must be completed by Aug. 31, 2022. Priority will be given to those who have not previously participated as mentees.
Want to be a mentor?
A mentor is an experienced leader or staff member with at least one year of UCOP service who is interested in helping others with professional and career development. Previous mentees are welcome to participate as mentors. If you’re interested in being a mentor for the coming year, please submit the short Mentor Interest Form by Monday, Aug. 29, 2022.
What are past participants saying about the program?
- More than 95% of participants in the program rated the program a 4 or 5 out of 5
- More than 96% of mentees stated that their mentor helped them reach their program goals
“I had a lot of valuable career guidance and coaching from my mentor. The support from my mentor, mentee cohort and Mentorship Program leader made my journey a great experience. I highly recommend the Mentorship Program to anyone who is interested in personal growth and building connections within the UCOP community.”
“I think I learned as much or more than my mentee!”
