On June 14th, the kickoff of the first round of the nationwide mentoring program for members of the PMI Germany Chapter will take place - giving the starting signal for the mentees and mentors.
Following a pilot project last year in the North, West and East regions, the chapter-wide rollout began in March and April with a total of 1,628 members nationwide and of the PMI Ukraine Chapter who met the criteria for a mentee or mentor communicated transparently in the invitation (here are more details for the criteria).
From the 75 applications received, 68 members have now been "matched" and formed into mentoring pairs, who will be briefed and familiarized with the rules at the "kick-off" on June 14th.
The program is designed to give participating members opportunities to work with other members of the Germany Chapter, achieve their own goals and help others to achieve their goals, as well as to exchange knowledge in a structured way - both practical experience and theoretical knowledge. Along the way, PDUs can also be earned.
Depending on how the mentoring program goes and the feedback on this round, a new one may be started after this round.
Thanks go to the three volunteers of the mentoring team Mireille Blum (Mentoring Pair Matching Profiler), Daniel Hernando Aguirre Castaneda (Mentoring Program Lead) and Michael Großjean (Mentoring Coordinator), without whom the pilot in 2022 and this real chapter-wide round would not have been possible.
