• Mentorship Program Pilot

  • GAACC is testing a mentorship program as an addition to our leadership initiative. We are looking for a few participants to help us test a program that has been successful in Phoenix (much appreciation to Asian Corporate & Entrepreneur Leaders for sharing best practices). For this pilot, we are focusing on just two growth areas, career guidance (securing promotions, learning new job skills, new manager) or business development (starting a new enterprise, expanding client base, entering new industry).

    Professionals and entrepreneurs! Having a mentor who is successful can help you achieve goals, avoid mistakes and have the support in creating the life you want. Been around the block? Being a mentor to a younger Asian Pacific American (APA) can allow you to pass on a legacy, gain leadership and coaching skills, and enrich your life and the well-being of the APA community here.

    Program duration will be nine months. Time commitment - the matched pairs must have 1 weekly conversation by email or phone, and meet once a month (don't have to talk by phone that week). GAACC hosted events will count as meetings for that month.

    Timeline:

    • February/March - applications for both mentee and mentor roles
    • April - welcome orientation for matched pairs
    • August - midpoint assessment event
    • January 2019 - graduation celebration at GAACC annual member meeting


    Interested?
    Application to our pilot program is now closed but we are in the process of matching our mentors and mentees. Contact Arisa Mitsunaga for progress.

    Confidentiality
    A successful mentoring relationship is grounded in trust. Any breach of confidentiality by any participant will be grounds for dismissal from the program. GAACC will hold your application and evaluations in confidence. However, your aggregate feedback will be used to fine tune our program.
