Emerging Professionals 
Mentoring Program 
About the program...

Have you been thinking about how to help develop emerging HR professionals and opportunities to share your lessons learned and career experiences? If so, consider learning more about the opportunity to become a mentor to one of our Emerging Professionals! 

Our program will provide opportunities for Emerging Professionals to gain an experienced HR practitioner’s perspective on growing in their career and becoming a successful HR professional. The program will allow emerging professionals to learn more about the industry or a specialized function of HR, grow their professional network, and develop a meaningful, professional relationship over the program length.

Mentors will also benefit from the program by contributing to the professional development of the future HR workforce, assist emerging professionals in beginning or transitioning into successful careers, and give something back to the profession.

We will be offering two opportunities this year to sign-up as a mentor and be paired with an Emerging Professional who has interests in similar areas of HR or industry sector. The program is designed to meet the busy lives of both mentors and mentees with flexibility on how your mentoring relationship is designed. To learn more, view the resources below.
