IIBN and IN-NYC are pleased to announce the initiation of our 2013 Irish Executive Mentorship Program. This is our 2nd year in launching this initiative, and having learned so much through our Mentor/Mentee participation in 2012 we are anticipating an even greater Program and reward for our participants in 2013!
The aim of the program is to harness the skills and insights of successful Senior Executives to help coach and develop the next generation of Irish and Irish American leaders across all industries.
The 5 to 6 month program will match Mentees with industry specific senior Mentors. Successful applicants will have access to their Mentor for one-to-one meetings, consultation and advice from September 2013 – January 2014. The program will commence and close with group events to reflect on progress and network with other participants and their Mentors.
For Mentees, this program will provide a unique opportunity to be paired with an experienced Mentor in their field as a means to enrich their professional network and receive guidance on career planning and professional development. There are also significant benefits to serving as a Mentor, including enhancing your record of demonstrated leadership and coaching skills, as well as the opportunity to give back and have a positive impact on your community.
We welcome Mentee applications from mid-level executives (5 years + experience) from all industries and sectors, who are current members of either IIBN or IN-NYC and who are committed to mentorship as a tool for career development and progression.
TO APPLY AS A MENTEE PLEASE COMPLETE THE APPLICATION FORM HERE AND SOMEONE WILL RESPOND TO YOU BY SEPTEMBER 27TH 2013.
We are also actively seeking Mentors who are senior Executives (10-15 years+ experience) across all fields. Participants should be able to commit approximately 10 hours to the program over the 5-6 month duration and be passionate about the value of mentorship as a tool to develop others.
TO APPLY AS A MENTOR PLEASE COMPLETE THE APPLICATION FORM HERE AND SOMEONE WILL RESPOND TO YOU BY SEPTEMBER 27TH 2013.
IIBN is a 'not for profit' organization whose membership is made up of successful Irish entrepreneurs and business professionals throughout the world.
The objective of IIBN is to facilitate greater communication between Irish people, people of Irish descent or those with a strong affinity to Ireland for the purpose of identifying and exploiting new business relationships and opportunities.
IIBN has a global focus. While individual IIBN city Chapters operate on a local autonomous basis, the key difference between IIBN and other similar local organizations is IIBN's mission statement to build a truly global network of Irish entrepreneurs and business professionals.
