Mentorship Program

IABC Houston is proud to announce the second year of our mentorship program for all communications professionals. Through Aug. 27, individuals can register as a mentor or mentee by completing our online questionnaire. After registering, participants are asked to join a virtual happy hour on Wednesday, Sept. 2 at 5:30 p.m., where mentors and mentees will meet and then rank their top three choices for pairings. The IABC Houston mentorship committee will then notify mentors/mentees of their pairings on Tuesday, Sept. 8.

By helping establish relationships between mentors and mentees, IABC members can sharpen their approach and grow as professionals. A mentor advising a mentee learns how to be a better advisor, and a mentee benefits from their experience by spreading and sharing their learnings among their IABC friends and colleagues.

A formal mentoring initiative also aligns with the IABC shared values which help define the culture and behavior of the organization and its members. These include:

We represent the global profession. As the only global communication association, we strive to advocate for the profession, represent best practices, define the global standard and live by a code of ethics.

We create connection. We connect businesses and people through communication. We foster community, build special relationships and learn from each other.

We are a diverse community. We welcome diverse communication professionals of all levels and practices. We embrace diverse viewpoints, encourage conversation and celebrate cultural differences.

We focus on insights and results. We position communication as a strategic function that has impact on return on investment and demonstrates business value of communication.
