Are you interested in developing new collegial relationships, learning more about the New American University model and understanding university resources?
Apply for the summer 2018 Staff Mentoring and Development Program beginning Thursday, February 1, 2018! Applications will be due Tuesday, April 3, 2018.
The ASU Commission on the Status of Women Staff Mentoring & Development Program pairs experienced and excelling staff members with staff who are interested in developing their career and leadership skills. Mentors and mentees are strategically matched by the CSW Office in a detailed process based on professional experience, strengths, areas of interest and program expectations. This upcoming session runs from June to December 2018.
“The CSW Mentoring program is a fantastic opportunity to make new connections. It was helpful to get professional feedback and talk through ideas with other leaders. The program also provided guided structure for self-reflection, which has helped me grow as a professional. I highly recommend the program,” said a former mentoring participant.
As part of the mentoring program, you will be required to attend a one-hour orientation session during the first month of the program. Following the orientation, the first one-on-one mentoring session should be one hour. The remaining meetings over the next five months of the program should be scheduled for a half-hour once per month.
Additionally, mentees will attend professional development workshops and events throughout the program, usually one per month. After completing all of the program requirements, mentors and mentees will earn a certification of completion.
During the program, the CSW will provide six to ten development and networking programs on the Tempe campus. Mentees are required to attend a minimum of four programs, though mentors are not required to attend.
The program is open to both men and women, but it is preferred that mentees have a combined professional or work experience of at least two years at ASU. Mentees with less than two years of experiences can still apply and are considered for placement.
Special program information sessions will be held at all ASU campuses, where Karen Engler-Weber, Program Director for the Commission, will discuss the program and the application process.
Due to limited space, participation in the CSW Staff Mentoring and Development Program is selective. Interested individuals are required to apply and pending application review, an individual may be accepted into the program.
