Calling All Mentors
If you want to make a personal difference in the future of the profession, and the future of a professional, become a mentor to current AIHF scholarship winners or put your name on a list to be contacted when other mentor requests are received.
Another way you can help the next generation of IHs is to “Adopt” younger members. Are you a committee chair or a member of a committee looking to get more student and early career professional involvement? “Adopt” our younger members and encourage them to become active through the committees. Contact our mentor coordinator for information on how to adopt a student or early career professional into your committee.
Calling All Mentees
- Build Your Network. Are you a new graduate? A student? Someone who is new to the profession? The SECP mentoring group can partner you with someone that can show you how to build your network.
- Career Guidance. Don’t know what you want to be when you grow up? Struggling with whether to go into consulting or academia? Many of us have been in your shoes. A mentor can offer you some perspective and to assist you on your path.
- Committee Adoption. Many students and early career professionals are hesitant to join AIHA committees because they are not experts in that field or topic. That is the perfect reason to join a committee. Ask us about how to be adopted by a committee you are interested in and build your expertise as you build valuable connections.
*PLEASE NOTE: you must be an active AIHA member to enroll in the mentoring program.*
One of my mentors really helped me push and get involved and into AIHA. It was the gentle nudge that has really helped me..."
