CISHRM Mentoring Program 

The CI SHRM Mentorship Program is currently in full swing! For additional information on the program, please read below.  If interested in being added to the list for the next program offering, please contact

This program is designed for CISHRM members with professional Human Resources experience to gain experience and insight into a new HR area of interest. The Program offers a 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.


There is no cost of this program for CISHRM members.


To have a successful mentoring relationship, a six month time commitment is required. Mentees and mentors will be expected to meet 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 a monthly survey to alert the Committee if the relationship is not working.
• Providing a testimonial at the conclusion of the program.

Participants will also be invited and highly encouraged to attend a Networking Event at the conclusion of the program.
