Mentoring: Power of 2

Mentoring: Power of 2 is available to all current members of the MPI Minnesota Chapter. This program matches volunteer mentors from the local chapter with mentees for a time commitment that works for the two of you! Mentoring is available to members at any stage in their career who are seeking to develop new skills or make progress toward professional goals. The program is intended for career development, and strictly prohibits participants from marketing or soliciting for business reasons.

Mentoring pairs meet to establish the mentee’s goals and a process for achieving them. Volunteer mentors are listed below, and interested mentees can seek pairings throughout the year.
