Mentorship

The SWHRMA Mentorship Program builds professional relationships between SWHRMA chapter members who want to grow in their HR profession, whether emerging professionals or established professionals, with some acting as mentors and others as mentees. The Mentorship Program offers a structured process to develop beneficial one-on-one relationships. Acting as a friend, a teacher, an advisor, and a guide to the real world, mentors have the opportunity to encourage and advise mentees by sharing their own experiences and knowledge of the HR profession.
