Peer mentoring helps professionals develop partnerships and grow their network. The ILN uses a model where all participants are treated as equals who have valuable experiences to share. This means that partners are not placed into established mentor/protégé roles, but rather are encouraged to view their partnership as a way to learn from each other; all are mentors and all are protégés.

So why participate in a peer mentoring program?

 

Peer mentoring can allow you to:

  1. rediscover your own valuable skills by sharing your experiences with your partner
  2. learn a different perspective on your profession
  3. build your network
  4. reinvigorate the passion your career
  5. develop your professional skills

Interested? Applications are now open for the next round of the ILN – it’s an amazing opporunity to get your very own international peer-mentor (and be one too) and it’s completely free – but hurry they close at Midnight on 15 February 2015!
