(Archive) Professional Mentorship Program - Mentoring Overview

Professional Mentorship Program Overview

As an added benefit of membership, CPHR Manitoba offers the Professional Mentorship Program. The aim of this member-only program is to help link established human resources professionals with students, emerging HR practitioners, and HR professionals looking to transition to a new field of interest, taking on a new capacity within their organizations, or interested in developing new skills for future career aspirations. These relationships enable the program participants and business leaders to exchange knowledge and experience relating to skill, culture and values. Participants gain valuable individual feedback and may observe companies and their leaders at work.  Overall, relationships of trust, respect and appreciation are built to enhance our shared community. The CPHR Manitoba Professional Mentorship Program is committed to promoting professionalism and mutual benefit to both Mentor and Mentee.

Time Commitment

The CPHR Manitoba Professional Mentorship Program runs from September to April. Two events for participants of the Professional Mentorship Program will be organized to celebrate the valuable relationship between Mentor and Protégé.  These events will allow all participants to socialize and network as a whole community. The form and frequency of the contact between mentors and protégés will vary.  Mentors and Mentees would be expected to:

  • Commit to at least 2-4 hours per month of interaction with their mentoring partner during the program (face to face,  phone, email, Skype)
  • Create a written learning and development plan at the beginning of the relationship and track their interaction with each other during the program
  • Attend a program kick-off where mentors and protégés will receive training and information on program objectives
  • Complete a survey at the end of the program to provide valuable feedback for the future of the program
