Staff Mentorship Program


About the GWA Staff Mentorship Program

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

Between February 2024 – November 2024,  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 three signature events over the course of the academic year with the full mentoring cohort.

How to Apply to be a Mentor or Mentee

Applications are now closed for the Feb 2024-Nov 2024 cohort.


Mentors (advisors): Staff/AAP or Faculty with a dual staff role who seek to share their knowledge and experience to help develop the next generation of Georgetown leaders. Please note: mentors will receive a toolkit with resources on mentoring tactics and activities.
