The TPMA Mentorship Program is designed to connect local product management professionals and individuals looking to start their product management careers or enrich their knowledge of the profession. The relationship between mentors and mentees is viewed as a professional one-on-one partnership, and both parties are expected to give time and energy to make the partnership work. Since its initial launch in 2011, the TPMA Mentorship Program has been a fun and rewarding way to learn and share experiences with like-minded local professionals.
Duration: The program runs once a year between December and June, lasting 6 months.
We are no longer accepting applications for the 2023-2024 season for the Mentorship Program. For all inquiries please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
TPMA pairs interested mentors and mentees together for a 1-on-1 mentoring experience. During the program kick-off presentation, TPMA will introduce both parties and provide the recommended framework for the program. Mentors and mentees are expected to discuss and agree on goals and processes before the program starts.
Mentors and mentees are expected to have at least one meeting per month and commit to ongoing constructive communication both ways, which is essential to the successful completion of the program. TPMA supports both mentors and mentees with check-in surveys every two months as well as program coordinators who are always available to help.
