by | Mar 15, 2021 | Newsletters

Our 2021 Emerging Leader Mentorship Program seeks to create 1-on-1 mentor/mentee matches for early careerists from underrepresented communities with mentors in senior-level positions in healthcare in a nine-month mentorship program. If you are interested in our mentor program, please contact our Director of Diversity and Inclusion, Veronique Perry, MHA, MBA.

Our Chapter believes that diversity and inclusion can serve as a catalyst for improved decision making, increased productivity, and a competitive advantage. The Emerging Leader Mentorship Program aims to engage more senior WFC ACHE members from minority populations in a formal mentorship program for the benefit of the early careerists’ professional development. The program includes the following components:

  • Mentor/mentee communications will mostly take place virtually—via phone and email

  • Free Health Administration Press leadership books for “book club” discussion

Benefits to mentees:

  • Encouragement to leverage ACHE resources
  • Establish early career professional goals
  • Formal and informal career guidance from mentors
  • Recognition of mentorship at Annual State of the Chapter event

Benefits to mentors:

  • Social engagement with early careerists
  • Standard mentorship program curriculum with clear expectations and agendas
  • Financial support for WFC ACHE Programming
  • Honoraria for speaking/moderating Emerging Leader Events
