Mentorship relationships are at their best when connections are made, sustained, and invested in.
This month, watch social media and engage in conversation on mentoring (using #NORDPMentoringMatters and #MentoringMonth) or take time to listen to a podcast or two (The Science of Mentorship from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine is a great listen). Here are some dates to make note of:
January 7 — I am a Mentor Day — own it!
January 17 — International Mentoring Day — #MentoringAmplifies support around the world
January 21 — Thank Your Mentor Day — share your story to inspire
