Mentoring Program


[men-tawr, -ter]


  • A wise and trusted counselor or teacher.

  • An influential senior sponsor or supporter.


We mentor to all ages, gender and ethnicity groups. The person in receipt of mentorship may be referred to as a protégé (male), a protégée (female), an apprentice or, in recent years, a mentee.

What does a mentor do?

  • Advocates – Offers sponsorship, provides exposure and visibility within the organization

  • Acquires resources – Brings critical readings, opportunities, or experiences to the attention of the mentee

  • Acts as a role model – Offers insight on how he or she “made it” in the organization

  • Advises – Shares institutional and professional wisdom, critiques performance, makes suggestions

  • Coaches – Helps a mentee learn new skills and practice new behaviors

  • Protects – Helps a mentee find new and challenging opportunities within the organization while protecting her from adverse forces and “dead-end” job assignments

  • Supports – Listens with a sympathetic ear, explains unwritten rules, and acknowledges disappointments and triumphs.
