Online mentorship program

The IAWRT Online Mentorship Program was conceptualized following feedback at the last IAWRT Biennial on December 5, 2020, and is aimed at providing opportunities for skill enhancement or professional advancement.

 

This will entail selecting and placing mentees and mentors in batches of two for the period of three months, six months, nine months or even one year, depending on the nature of the activity. Mentoring will be conducted online since members will be located at different geographical locations across the globe; or unable to meet due to COVID restrictions even if they are in the same city.
