About the GWA Mentorship Program

The GWA mentoring program provides an opportunity for early and mid-career Georgetown mentees to receive professional and career development advice from more senior Georgetown colleagues. And, it offers a chance for mentors to hone their leadership skills in a supportive environment—with an optional mentor training track.

Between October 2018 – June 2019, mentor/mentee pairs will participate in structured and unstructured interactions. Each pair will commit to monthly one-on-one meetings, supported by a mentoring toolkit and stipend. Participants will also attend four signature events over the course of the academic year with the full mentoring cohort.


Mentors (advisors): Staff/AAP who seek to share their knowledge and experience to help develop the next generation of Georgetown leaders. Please note: at the program launch event, mentors will receive a toolkit with resources on mentoring tactics and activities. They will also be invited to join an optional mentor training program.

Mentees (learners): Staff/AAP who wish to continue their development as professionals through a supportive relationship with a more senior leader on campus.
