ESA is accepting applications for our new Mentorship Program, designed to foster the growth of rising leaders within the industry and assist in bridging the gap between multiple generations. The structured, nine-month program will connect those looking for guidance and growth in their security industry career with industry veterans who have committed to sharing their experiences and perspectives.
The program will officially begin with 25 mentor/mentee pairs in January and the Class of 2016 will be announced at the 2016 ESA Leadership Summit. Members of the Young Security Professionals (YSP) Group Council and ESA staff will match mentees with mentors from ESA-member companies based on developmental goals and areas of interest included in the participant applications.
The cornerstone of the mentorship program is the comprehensive Professional Development Series, in which mentors and their mentees will meet for a minimum of two hours per month either in person or via phone/video conference. The in-person meetings will begin at the Leadership Summit and also take place at ESX and at a special event in October that will mark the culmination of the program.
Only 25 pairs of mentors and mentees will be accepted into the program, so download the Mentor and Mentee application today to be considered for a spot in the program!
Eligible participants must be employed with an ESA member company for a minimum of one year. Applications are due Nov. 25, 2015. Please click here to review the ESA Mentorship Program components, eligibility/requirements and FAQ's.
