Fostering relationships mentor to mentee

A mentor meets with mentees.

The Council for Career Enhancement and Professionalization (CCEP), one of 14 employee affinity groups at the Department of State, hosted a speed mentoring event, April 17, where four Department leaders gathered to offer their years of experience and advice to approximately 30 participants. The mentors rotated every 12 minutes to speak to different, small groups of mentees located around the room. They offered great tips on how to navigate a career in the federal government, as well as best practices on how to achieve work-life balance. Through this event, mentees were able to interact with senior leaders in an environment that allowed them to ask questions and receive tailored advice. To learn more, contact CCEP.
