The ISACA Mentorship Program facilitates one-to-one mentorship connections and brings together ISACA members at all stages of their careers who want to give or receive professional development support. Career mentoring helps both participants to expand networks, gain new knowledge and insights, and build new skills.

We see mentoring as a two-way opportunity for a mentor and a mentee to each gain perspective from a person who is at a different point in their career. Mentees are empowered to think about professional goals and find a suitable mentor to guide them along the way. Mentors consider connection requests thoughtfully, and accept mentees who align with their experience. This connection may aid in management style, emotional intelligence and other interpersonal skills, or the discovery of new approaches with colleagues.

Whether you are a new professional, a career changer who is new to the profession, seasoned in your field or somewhere in between, you are invited to join ISACA's members-only Mentorship Program.

*New ISACA members will gain access to the mentorship platform within approximately 24 hours. Please contact ISACA Support if you need assistance.

I was excited about the opportunity to counsel a young, ambitious lady from Uganda. After a few meetings I realized that she was far more knowledgeable than I had been at her age, given the exposure to social media and this age of ever-changing technology. The learning has been both ways – I counsel her on the roadmap to strengthen her career in infosec, and, in the process, I get to learn about the creative perspective with which someone from the younger generation approaches her challenges. - Sharda Shetty, ISACA Mentor (read Sharda's contribution to the ISACA Now blog)

I would recommend ISACA's Mentorship Program to anyone - the resources, connections, and dedicated guidance from my mentor have been invaluable. Most of us have a drive and will to learn, but the guidance I received during my mentorship sessions have pushed me miles ahead of where I would be if I decided to learn on my own. I hope to one day be able to return the favor.
- Lehlohonolo Makoti, ISACA Mentee
