ISAWWA Mentoring Program Details


Our Mission:

To promote personal and professional growth by cultivating a supportive environment in which to share knowledge, experience and advice with water professionals in all aspects and levels of water to the benefit of the water industry as a whole.


What is mentoring?

For our program purposes, mentoring is defined as using both formal and informal mentoring approaches to pair water professionals in a mentoring relationship characterized by mutual respect and trust to encourage, support and foster personal and professional growth.  


What type of mentoring is offered?

There are several types of mentoring relationships.  At this time we are offering two specific types of mentoring relationships:

     1: Traditional one-on-one mentoring:

  •  This is what most people typically think of as mentoring.
  • One mentee and one mentor establish and maintain a longer term (suggested minimum 12 months) mentoring relationship. 
  • Focus of this type of mentoring relationship is on the person (mentee), their career, and support for individual growth and maturity.  The mentee may learn how to  plan their career path, improve in public speaking, navigate tricky professional situations, achieve their professional goals, etc.

     2: Coaching:

  • One mentor can work with one or a small group of mentees (likely from the same organization) for a short term mentoring relationship, such as a one time          coaching session, or four coaching sessions over a one month period.
  • Focus of this type of mentoring relationship is on learning how to complete a task, such as learning how to build a screen in a SCADA system, how to calibrate a UVT meter, or how to install a new flow meter. 


We hope to offer additional types of mentoring relationships in the future as our program grows!
