Professional Mentorship

LCRCC’s Professional Mentoring Program is a cross-company, cross-industry mentoring initiative that facilitates one-on-one learning and leadership development opportunities between up-and-coming professionals and experienced leaders in our community. Mentees and mentors meet a minimum of one time each month for six months to discuss the mentee’s goals, exchange ideas, and learn. Mentors are identified based on their skills, experience, knowledge of the community, and interest in serving. The program enables participants to gain support and feedback as they seek to grow personally and professionally.

Applications for the 2019/2020 program are now closed.  Email us to stay up to date when applications for the 2020/2021 program go live.
