Apply for the UCOP Mentorship Program today
The UCOP Mentorship Program is seeking mentees and mentors for its next annual session, offered September 2022 through June 2023 — virtually and in-person. The program’s goal 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. Participating in the program is a great opportunity to share and learn career skills and leadership practices, guide and navigate the UCOP culture and build lasting professional relationships.
