Emerging Leaders Committee
We are offering a mentorship program that is offered in the Spring to all Emerging Leaders. We want to contribute to an engaged, connected, and competent public health workforce in Colorado that effectively prevents, promotes and protects the health of Coloradans.
Cultivate a strong future of public health in Colorado by facilitating mentorship between seasoned public health professionals and the future generation of public health leaders.
The integrity and nature of the mentoring program is specifically important to the Emerging Leaders Committee. This is why it is important to note that mentoring is NOT a "quick fix," a casual arrangement, therapy, a job search, or a one way street. Mentoring is a valuable relationship where both the mentor and mentee develop skillsets, build a friendship, and deepen the Colorado public health community. It is a process by which one assists another in clarifying professional goals and creating an action plan to achieve those goals.
Our goal is to create a program that skillfully matches mentees with mentors where both individuals are able to learn and thrive. Due to this, our program will create matches on a rolling basis, all year round. This program will launch on March 1st, 2023.
MENTOR applications are now open and we invite you to apply! We encourage you to think critically about your answers so we can best match you to a mentor.
Mentee applications open soon on January 30th, 2023! These applications will remain open until February 28th, 2023.
