If you’re a member of Support Driven and seek an opportunity to accelerate your professional development, consider participating in Aspire, Support Driven’s career mentoring program.
Mentees are paired with experienced mentors to receive one-on-one guidance and support as they grow their careers; mentors get an opportunity to teach, coach and share what they know with their peers.
This is a valuable growth experience, and a great way to participate actively in our growing community.
“Aspire helped team me up with an awesome mentor who helped me identify what it is I wanted out of my career, and ultimately led me to find a new role that better fit my career goals.
Having a third party mentor allowed me to be really candid about what I wanted, and gave me a great resource for professional advice.”
“Aspire has been a very rewarding opportunity for me to share my perspective and help a fellow community member reach her goals. Conversations with my mentee have been a great way for both of us to sharpen our professional expertise and keep moving support folks forward!”
“[My mentee and I] learned a lot from each other - from books to read, to “how to act like the boss when your boss leaves the company suddenly” - these conversations were all two-way and in great depth.
I can’t wait to do this again, although I think my mentee and I will probably continue to advise each other informally for some time to come.”
“[The best part of being a mentor was] Being able to help someone else. I wish I could go back in time and tell a younger me all these things, but I can’t. The next best thing is to do that for someone else.”
