Mentoring Program

Winning Connections to Accelerate Career Growth

Supported by the ASIS Professional Development Community, the Security Leaders Mentoring Program connects security professionals worldwide to a wealth of resources, advice, and guidance through one-on-one connections. Any ASIS member at any job level may participate in the program.


How the Program Works

ASIS Members are welcomed to sign up to be a mentor or mentee – or both – considering your interests and needs. The Security Leaders Mentoring Program consists of an online, searchable mentors directory  and mentoring support community. Once a member has set up a mentee profile, they can search the directory for potential mentor matches and reach out to those with whom they’d like to connect. Mentorship relationships are encouraged to run at least six months.

The mentoring program is currently accepting mentors and mentees.

Lisa Dolan, CPP shares her experience with mentoring and its benefits.

"There’s nothing more important than freely helping someone. I get so much more with the people that I’ve mentored. Some of them see me, and I’m thinking “What? What did I do? I mean, I just answered some questions you had, and whenever you needed some advice I gave it to you." I would encourage people no matter what age you are you can always still learn something and there’s always room for that. I’m a big proponent of mentoring." - Lisa Dolan, CPP.
