The ONE2ONE Mentor-Protégé program will resume in 2020.

Look for updates later this year for your opportunity to participate in the ONE2ONE Mentor-Protégé program. The program is undergoing slight revisions to ensure greater opportunities for engagement and content relevant to the changing needs of the A/E/C community.

 How the One2One Mentoring Program Works

All prospective mentors and protégés must complete the application form that follows, regardless of previous program participation, and submit it along with a current resume that includes work history, educational background, special skills and interests, and any other relevant biographical information. The information is intended to assist the One2One Committee to match mentor/protégé pairs based upon background and career tracks. Following the matching process, applicants will receive a reply letting you know if you have been accepted into the One2One Program and next steps.

Each pair is required to meet individually face to face on a monthly basis, and to participate in structured group training sessions. The sessions feature a curriculum of speakers and workshops designed to facilitate personal and career development for both mentors and protégés. These sessions will revolve around a specific topic and provide opportunity for learning and group discussion.


More information on dates and content will be available soon!

“Participating in the SMPS Mentor/Protégé program has given me a much better understanding of what it means to be a marketer in the A/E/C industry. Spending time one-on-one with my mentor, Shelley Hartnett, learning from other seasoned marketers in the group and connecting with peers has been an awesome experience! I highly recommend participating in this program.”

Jim Mellor | Pinkard Construction

 "The Mentor/Protégé program has provided me with lifelong personal and professional development skills that I would not have learned elsewhere. In the process, close, caring and supportive personal relationships were formed that will continue far after the program ends."

Anna Matschulat | Shaffer Baucom Engineering & Consulting

 “The One2One mentoring program is a fantastic initiative that the Colorado chapter has begun. The thoughtfulness around the programs offered in the group setting once a month really helped to solidify the intentionality between mentor and protégé in developing working relationships aimed at growth and improvement. The experience is very worthwhile. As a mentor, it is fulfilling and also allows for self-reflection on how I accomplished things in my career, allowing me to grow and evaluate processes, as I talked through them with my protégé. Together we were both helping one another and it has been a lot of fun.”

Jennifer VanVleet | MWH Global

 "The Mentor/Protégé program has been a great experience for me. Getting to know my protégé and hearing her point of view has not only been rewarding (and fun!) but has given me some new perspectives on marketing. The program has been very well-organized and planned, maintaining momentum throughout the year. For mentors who want to share their expertise and protégés who'd like to learn, this is a valuable experience to share."
