Mentoring Program invites applicants; deadline extended to May 18

The Commission for Women is now accepting applications for its 2012-13 Mentoring Program. The purpose of the program, which was established in 1999, is to enhance professional and personal development among administrators, faculty, staff and technical service employees by connecting them with others who can provide advice on work-related issues such as career planning, job skills enhancement, University involvement and others. Monthly professional development events are free and address topics such as leadership skills, image in the workplace, and how to build on your mentoring relationship. Mentors have the opportunity to "pay it forward" and guide a colleague, while protégés have a chance to focus on achieving professional goals. Mentors can come from all levels of experience, while protégés do not need to be new to the workforce or the University.

For more information, visit http://equity.psu.edu/cfw/programs. To apply to be a mentor or protégé, visit http://equity.psu.edu/cfw/programs/application. The application deadline is Friday, May 18.
