Expressions of Interest from experienced professional logisticians and less senior practitioners in NSW and Victoria, to participate as mentors or mentees, in the LAA/APICS 2008 Mentoring Programs are now being sought.
The APICS/LAA Ltd Mentoring Program, now entering its 5th year, offers mentees a great opportunity to talk through the issues they may be facing in their work life and to explore the options available to them in a supportive, non-judgmental environment.
They can listen to the experiences of the mentors and determine the right way for them to overcome obstacles in their day-to-day roles and in their career development.
Opportunities are also provided for participants to meet each other and discuss the issues and challenges they face. This is done through group meetings or site visits.
Mentor training is free to participating Mentors who volunteer their time and expertise — giving back to the supply chain industry by assisting less senior supply chain professionals.
Mentees also attend a two hour induction session — ensuring that they understand the mentoring relationship and are able to establish realistic expectations and set clear goals.
The NSW Supply Chain Mentoring Program will commence in March 2008.
The Victorian Supply Chain Mentoring Program will commence in April 2008.
