Scope of Work

We are working to build the mentoring program through AIHA to pair mentors and mentees who would like to enhance their learning, leadership, and communication skills. Our professional development side of the committee is looking to create webinars and resources for OEHS professionals that center largely around soft skills and furthering their learning.

Goals and Objectives

The Mentoring and Professional Development Committee’s goals have largely revolved around the AIHA Mentoring Program. With the launch of the new AIHA Mentoring system, Qooper, our goals for the future of the MPDC have evolved! We will continue to be a resource for the mentors and mentees who go through the Mentoring program. Still, we will also be focusing on the professional development aspect of our committee.

  • Provide mentors and mentees with a dedicated team to help with their mentoring needs.
  • Provide various activities throughout the year where professionals of each stage can engage and learn new technical and soft skills needed to succeed. We aim to create a suite of products, services, and activities to help IH professionals grow and develop professionally. Activities will be largely virtual-based, but we are open to ideas.
