MPI Tennessee is so excited to start our 2nd Session of member-focused Mentorship Program

Purpose
To provide an environment and opportunity for personal development, professional growth, and relationship building between new and experienced members. 

This program is designed to benefit both mentees and mentors alike by cultivating relationships that help individuals grow their career.  As referenced in a recent Forbes article, mentoring relationships can “push your career to a new height” and can “deliver a rewarding and potentially life-changing experience for both the mentor and the mentee.”  Effective mentoring happens when both the mentor and mentee assume responsibility for making the relationship work.
