The Mentoring Program provides an opportunity for employees to apply for and participate in a mentoring relationship as either a mentor or a mentee. Mentors share experiences and wisdom to help a fellow employee reach his or her professional goals. Mentees can seek guidance and support in reaching their own professional goals. In either case, relationships are built, professional networks are established, and insights are gained.
