Ascend New York 2015-2016 Professional Mentoring Program



DESCRIPTION
Ascend NY Metro Chapter will launch its Professional Mentoring Program for FY2015-2016. This program will be an annual 12-month program (November 2015 to November 2016) which focuses on 1-to-1 mentoring to provide professional career and personal development to young professionals. Mentors and mentees will decide the time and place to meet at their convenience throughout this 12-month time frame but we recommend for them to attend at least 1 Ascend event together and to meet in person or over the phone at least once per quarter.

MENTORS REQUIREMENTS
- Professionals with 10 or more years of work experience

MENTEES REQUIREMENTS
- Professionals with 1 to 9 years of work experience
- Ascend professional members only

MENTORS AND MENTEES MATCHING PROCESS
Ascend will organize a speed networking event on November 17 for mentors and mentees to select their potential mentees/mentors based on their professional background and preferences. At the speed networking event, evaluation forms will be provided to mentors/mentees to fill out to inform the Ascend mentoring program committee of their top three preferred mentor/mentee. Ascend will try to match the requests made by the mentors/mentees and inform the participants of the final assignments for the year shortly after the networking event. Ascend will organize a second event in June 2016 for mentors and mentees to catch up and to share their experiences with others in the program.
