OWWA matches young professional mentees who are seeking to expand their knowledge of the industry with experienced professionals to create a mentor/mentee relationship. Mentors will increase personal fulfillment as they give back to the industry, and mentees will learn skills development techniques and industry knowledge to help guide their career.
Mentor/Mentee matches can expect a 7-month (November 2020 – May 2021) commitment. Matches will determine the frequency of their meetings throughout the program, however, OWWA suggests scheduling a meeting once per month. *Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we encourage all meetings take place through video chat or phone call for the time being. Matches are created based on goals, experiences, interests, and career paths.
Our mentors are experienced professionals in the water industry who wish to give back to the industry and help develop and guide the new generation of water professionals. Mentors will share their knowledge and experience with their mentee. This could include skills and leadership development, transfer of institutional knowledge, and industry insights. As a mentor, you will help to promote a culture of generosity and open dialogue in the industry, and ensure young professionals get the most out of their OWWA membership.
Our mentees are young professionals in the early stages of their career who wish to develop their industry skills and knowledge. Mentees will have the opportunity to discuss career goals, skills development opportunities, and gain insight on career paths and industry knowledge.
