NABITA Mentor Match

Introducing NABITA's New Peer-to-Peer Mentoring Program

We are pleased to announce NABITA Mentor Match, NABITA’s new mentoring program, which is open and free to all NABITA Members. The purpose of Mentor Match is to foster leadership in the field by connecting experienced BIT professionals with newer BIT professionals.

How Does Mentor Match Work?

Mentor Match works by pairing Mentors, who are more experienced BIT professionals, with Mentees, who are less experienced professionals. Mentors will be paired either one-on-one with Mentees or with a group of Mentees. Mentees will meet with their Mentors to work toward professional goals. Please note that NABITA’s Mentor Match is not intended to be used for consulting services. Mentors are paired with Mentees to assist in developing professional skills, obtaining resources, and providing support within their BIT role. Please click here to be directed to NABITA’s parent organization, TNG, for consulting services or become a member of NABITA to join the listserv.

Both Mentors and Mentees must:

  • Be a member of NABITA. Learn more about NABITA membership
  • Commit to six months of programming by meeting at least once every other month
  • Attend a brief, complimentary training
  • Complete satisfaction surveys throughout the program

How Do I Participate?

To participate in Mentor Match, you must be a member of NABITA and fill out an application. Applications are open and free to all levels of membership in NABITA.

Once you have completed the application, you will be notified via email whether you have been selected to participate. Depending on number of applicants and fit, NABITA will match Mentors with Mentees either one-on-one or in groups.

Mentors and Mentees are chosen based on the fit available, so there is a chance that not everyone who applies will be selected. If you are not selected, you are encouraged to apply again for the next round of applications, which will open in December 2022.

Mentor Application

Mentors are more experienced in the profession and provide support to a less-experienced professional, the Mentee. Please apply now if you feel that you can give back to those just starting in the field or transitioning to a role in the field. Application deadline: Oct. 1, 2022.
