About the Program

Developed by CSCMP's Young Professionals Committee, our Mentorship Program is designed to foster knowledge and connection through learning partnerships. The goal of CSCMP’s Mentorship Program is to help you take a proactive role in your supply chain career development journey by giving you the opportunity to become involved in a valuable 1:1 paired mentoring partnership.

What is a mentoring partnership?

A mentoring partnership connects two individuals with the shared goal of personal and professional development.

Mentoring partnerships facilitate the sharing of information, knowledge and experience. Mentoring dynamics also foster learning with and from one another, receiving and giving career advice and collaborating to generate new innovative ideas.

Mentoring partnerships should be based on mutual trust and respect in which both parties benefit on a professional and personal level. A mentoring partnership can be tailored to your specific goals, needs and priorities. All career levels, ages, and member types are welcome to apply as a mentor or mentee.

Benefits of a mentorship program

  • Mentees share and learn critical knowledge and skills to advance their career.
  • Mentors contribute to the career development of mentees while strengthening their leadership and communication skills.
  • Mentors and mentees leverage one another as soundboard for advice, encouragement, perspective and career planning.
  • Both mentors and mentees build their professional networks while holding one another accountable to achieve their goals and priorities.

Why participate in a mentorship program?

“The CSCMP mentorship program was highly rewarding and truly global. My mentee was based in Hungary, and I was transitioning from Singapore to Chicago. We were a great fit and he really drove the process for us. I very much appreciate the opportunity to share my experience and enjoyed being a mentor. To top it off, the program was well structured and provided plenty of material to get us going.”
