The Leadership Institute’s Mentorship Program is a program that facilitates one-on-one and small group mentoring relationships that connect mentees with leaders in the organization to learn and develop. The purpose of this program is to develop employees, enhance leadership skills, and to create a strong and supportive culture across UTHealth. There are several benefits for both the mentor and mentee in this program. Mentees will benefit from growth in their professional networks, learn to navigate workplace challenges, develop their leadership skills, and will be able to explore opportunities and build a career path. Mentors will develop feedback and critical thinking skills, grow their network within the organization, advance their leadership skills, and gain a better understanding of the organization.
This program is offered through the Office of Human Resources – Organizational and Talent Development in Collaboration with the Office of Faculty Affairs and Development. The mentorship program is utilizing a mentoring software platform that facilitates the organization and management of mentoring programs. This includes matching mentors and mentees, scheduling sessions, and tracking progress. The software’s matching algorithm is designed to give you several matches to choose from based on the mentee’s area of learning and the mentor’s area of expertise.
