NZ Chapter Mentoring Program 2022

Published 1st March 22 12:00 AM

Applications are now open for the NZ Chapter Mentoring Program in 2022

Why mentoring?

Professional mentoring is a powerful tool for students, early career professionals and those well into their chosen career field. Mentoring programmes run annually in each division/chapter of the EIANZ and participants are carefully paired to gain maximum benefit from the program.

As a mentee, you will receive increased potential for career mobility and promotion, access to and development of new networks, and guidance from experienced professionals within the industry. As a mentor, you will receive enhancement of skills in coaching, have challenging discussions with people who have fresh perspectives, and gain continuing professional development points (for Certified Environmental Practitioners - CEnvP).

The 2022 program

Participants will have the option to attend the ‘NZ Mentoring Programme Welcome Event’, which will be held online in April. The event will give participants the chance to:

  • Learn about the purposes and goals of the program from the program co-ordinator;
  • Hear about the experiences of 2020 program participants and their suggestions on how to make the most out of mentoring relationships; and
  • Meet their assigned mentor/mentee as well as other EIANZ members from across NZ who are also participating in the program.

How to participate?

EIANZ membership (Full, Associate or Student) is required to participate in the program as a mentee, can be applied for here >

Please apply for membership PRIOR to applying for the mentoring program. It can take a few days to process and approve membership applications. Membership is encouraged but is not required to participate in the program as a mentor. There is no official requirement for a mentor, however it is generally expected that mentors will have at least three years’ experience in their relevant field.

The program cost is $40 for mentees who are EIANZ members. There is no charge for mentors to be part of this program.

Registration is a 2-part process. Please complete the mentoring pairing survey by clicking on the teal bottom below. Once you have done that click on the register as a mentee or mentor buttons below. To be considered for the program you must complete both steps.
