Mentorship can be a critical segue into the field of ID, giving mentees important insights from experienced ID professionals and offering mentors the satisfaction of supporting a young professional following in their footsteps. This program fosters effective mentor/mentee interactions that incorporate three key elements: professional development, education and a vision for the mentee’s future career.
The 2022 application period for the 2022 IDWeek Mentorship Program will close August 19, 2022.
