UCOP Mentorship Program

The UCOP Mentorship Program is seeking mentees and mentors for its next annual program beginning March 2021 and concluding in September, 2021.

The Mentorship Program is an exciting opportunity to share and learn career skills and leadership practices, guide and navigate the UCOP culture, and establish long term professional relationships. We want to acknowledge the unique context of this year. After conducting survey to determine interest and need for a mentorship program at this time, the UCOP Mentorship Steering Committee decided to move forward with an all virtual 2021 Mentorship Program.

The goal of the Mentorship Program is to create mentor–mentee pairings that provide a supportive structure for UCOP employees to cultivate contacts, explore challenges and enhance their effectiveness as they grow both personally and professionally.

Who can become a Mentee?

The program is open for all Office of the President staff members (career, contract or represented) from all classifications, who have worked at UCOP for at least 6 months.  Simply complete the Mentee Application.
