CISHRM Mentorship Program 

We are looking for professionals interested in getting involved in the CISHRM Mentorship Program! This program is designed for CISHRM members who are interested in gaining additional experience or insight into a new HR area of interest. The Program offers a semi-structured setting to develop beneficial one-on-one relationships. Acting as a teacher, friend and guide to the real world, mentors have the opportunity to encourage and advise individuals by sharing their own experiences and knowledge in the Human Resources profession. Individuals participating in the program will have the opportunity to build their professional network, expand HR competencies, plan for a career transition, and increase HR knowledge in a mentor/mentee relationship.



Cost: FREE

There is no cost for active CISHRM members. 


To have a successful mentoring relationship, a six month time commitment is required. Mentees and mentors will be expected to meet at least once a month for six total sessions. Each relationship is unique so time and energy commitments per session will vary. After the mentoring pairs are established, the first step is to develop a Mentoring Agreement that is reasonable for both parties and includes: predetermined dates and times of monthly sessions, length of monthly sessions, means of communication between sessions, professional appearance expectations, goal setting, and establishing development activities.

Talking points will be distributed to the mentor and mentee at the beginning of the program. Each month, there will be a different topic of discussion in addition to the goals set by the pair. 

Mentors and mentees will also be responsible for: 
• Completing surveys as requested
• Providing a testimonial at the conclusion of the program.

Participants will also be invited and highly encouraged to attend a Program Kick-Off Event (Date: TBD) and Mid-Year roundtable discussions.
