UCOP Mentorship Program: Apply to be a mentee or mentor
The UCOP Mentorship Program is seeking mentees and mentors for its next annual program, running from January through November, 2024.
The UCOP Mentorship Program 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 2024 program will be available both in person and/or virtually to match the needs of mentors and mentees.
The goal of the UCOP Mentorship Program is to create mentor–mentee pairings that provide a supportive structure for UCOP employees to cultivate contacts, explore challenges and enhance their effectiveness as they grow personally and professionally.
Interested in being mentored?
The mentorship program is open to all employees who have been at UCOP for six months or more. If you want to become a mentee, please complete the Mentee Application by Dec. 8, 2023. Please note that priority will be given to those who have not previously participated as a mentee.
Interested in mentoring others?
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 2024 program, please submit the short Mentor Interest Form by Dec. 11, 2023.
What past participants are saying about the program:
- “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!”
Over 95% of participants in the program rated the program a 4 or 5 out of 5. Over 96% of mentees stated that their mentor helped them reach their program goals.
