Mentorship Chair Position Description

Mentorship is a program that creates impact on the deepest level. It engages members in synergistic, one-on-one relationships that accelerate personal development by focusing on goals, accountability and results. It’s a platform for gaining new perspective, sharing feedback and learning from another’s experience in an intimate setting. Whether serving as a mentee or a mentor, members rank mentorship as one of the most valuable experiences in EO.

Goals of a Mentorship Chair:

  • Recruit Mentors and Mentees for the annual Mentorship Program intake and pair them up

  • Maintain Mentorship pair health

To achieve these goals or other objectives for the Chapter, you may have a number of ideas and initiatives that you wish to pursue. Many of these ideas would have been generated during your time on the Mentorship Committee or on the experiences you may have discussed with members of other Chapters in Australia, New Zealand or around the world. You may also have discussed some ideas with your predecessor during succession meetings. You should raise these ideas for consideration with the Board at the Strategy Summit.
