Does your business have a commitment to a corporate social responsibility program? Are you looking for a program that affords your firm with corporate recognition and has tangible outcomes that advances the careers of young engineers in the public infrastructure sector?
IPWEA’s professional mentoring program for Young IPWEA members could be the perfect alignment with your objectives.
IPWEA has previously conducted two groups of 30 young people being mentored with outstanding success. Our professional experts at Art of Mentoring have been instrumental in delivering the scheme’s success for both mentors and mentees. However, the cost of presenting the scheme over the 10 month period, which is just under $20,000pa, is beyond the capacity of IPWEA to continue.
We know that many firms in the corporate sector that do not normally sponsor or advertise often have a commitment to supporting schemes that have an opportunity to make a real difference to people’s lives and careers. We have the documented evidence to validate the success for the previously conducted mentoring schemes which we would be happy to share with any potential benefactor.
Even if your firm is not in a position to consider supporting this very worthwhile scheme to help retain our young people in the industry and to assist in advancing their careers as emerging managers in the public sector, please forward this request on to anyone in your network who you feel may be interested.
It would be most encouraging if we could make a major industry announcement with naming rights for the 2018 mentoring scheme and start the year on a positive note for 30 of the industry’s most aspiring young engineers.
For a confidential discussion or more details, please feel free to contact me.
Thank you for considering this request.Robert FullerCEO, IPWEA
