Launching ABANA’s 2022 Mentorship Program!

2022 Professional Development & Mentorship with ABANA

We are pleased to launch a professional mentorship program for ABANA members. The program will pair early-career professionals (0-10 years of experience) with mid-career and senior professionals (10+ years of experience) through a series of meetings over six months focused on professional and career development.

Over the month of March (2022), ABANA will collect applications and make pairings based on sector and affinity. We will then make introductions and share guidelines, although we encourage mentees and mentors to jointly set goals. Meetings can take place virtually or in person. Midway through, ABANA will check-in with participants, and upon completion of the program, ABANA will collect feedback from both mentees and mentors.

Structure: 

  • April / Month 1: Introduction and first mentorship meeting
  • May – August / Months 2 – 5: Three mentorship meetings
  • September / Month 6: Final meeting and ABANA feedback

Why participate? 

For early career professionals, to build new relationships and gain insight that can advance your careers, and for later stage professionals, to give back to the community and get a fresh perspective.
