The Power of Connection.
The MentorSHPE program facilitates one-to-one mentoring relationships that support personal and professional growth and development. The program is designed to expand professional networks, allow participants to gain new knowledge and insights, and build new skills for both mentors and mentees. Mentoring matches will work together to define expectations, determine goals and a corresponding action plan, and outline milestones to track progress. Mentees can select mentors based on alignment of goals, specific needs, or characteristics.
Use the MentorSHPE platform to connect with a mentor or a mentee. This online platform allows for one-on-one mentoring and is open to those in the STEM fields. MentorSHPE allows you to easily connect, manage your mentor/mentee relationship, and offers tools to guide your relationship.
MentorSHPE offers three options for connections. Mentees and mentors can choose how they want to connect!
Mentees looking for a one-time connection with a mentor. Maybe you have a work situation you’d like to talk through, perhaps you have a job offer and you want some guidance on negotiation skills, or you are looking to get more involved in leadership and need some guidance. This program offers mentors and mentees the opportunity to connect for a conversation that sometimes can develop into longer connections but is designed for a one-time connection.
The right conversation at the right time with the right person.
Why become a mentor?

Not sure if you have the time? Mentoring connections within the MentorSHPE program are designed to last three months. Current MentorSHPE Mentors report an average of 3-7 hours per month dedicated to the mentoring connection which includes virtual monthly meetings, messaging between meetings, and activities like reviewing resumes.
Not sure if you are experienced enough professionally? Mentors of all skill levels, professions, and life experience are needed. Mentees select mentors based on alignment of goals, specific needs, or characteristics. I guarantee there is a mentee that will benefit from your experience and advice!
Don’t have any experience as a mentor? The MentorSHPE program utilizes an online platform that provides tools like handbooks and worksheets created by SHPE to provide structure for first time mentors and to ensure that the mentoring relationships remain goal driven to provide the maximum benefit for both mentors and mentees.

About the Platform
The MentorSHPE program is built on the Chronus platform. The MentorSHPE platform connects mentor and mentees without the limitation of geography. This online platform provides tools created by SHPE to ensure that the mentoring relationships remain goal driven to provide the maximum benefit for both mentors and mentees. The system provides gentle reminders to ensure that participants are actively engaged throughout the duration of the mentoring relationship.
The platform also makes it easy for mentors and mentees to communicate and schedule meetings. Personal calendars can be connected into the online platform to simplify finding a time to connect. In addition, there is an integrated messaging system that allows users to set-up notifications that meet their specific needs.
