Mentorship Program


The PMI San Francisco Bay Area Chapter Mentorship Program fosters a community of project management professionals from all industries and experience levels. We support fellow professionals who are either transitioning into a Project/Program Management career or are seasoned professionals who seek to grow into senior leadership roles

Coaching Circles 2021

Our Coaching Circle Program is a structured, 8-week topic-based focus group of up to 4 mentees with similar interests mentored by a senior mentor from Beginner to Advanced levels. We are introducing real-world experiential learning with an opportunity for Mentees to showcase their new skills in one of two independent tracks of Career Building or Leadership Development. Gain confidence and valuable skills as you participate in a Mentor-led experiential learning group. Mentees will either participate in live practice interviews or present to esteemed business leaders and guest panelists based on the topics of their assigned circle.

  • One-on-One Mentoring: Mentees who have specific objectives or growth ideas will be enabled to strategize and achieve focused goals in a time-boxed framework

Past Programs

In 2020, the Mentorship Program successfully supported 146 mentors and mentees in 1:1 pairings over the course of 6-months. While being proud of all the incredible partnerships formed, the Program’s special recognition goes to the three Star Mentor awardees, Jeff Cadieux, Mary Ann Michaels, and Janet Tsai, for their exceptional commitment and impact to the mentee by sharing intellectual wisdom and providing moral support. Our cordial gratitude also goes to the three exceptional mentors Troy Edelen, Gautham Pallapa and Nancy Watanabe, and high-performing mentees Jovita Yip and Erika Luger

“Jovita moved from being a Senior Manager at an SMB to a Director at a large high tech company during the course of this mentorship program.”

"This program is fantastic! I feel very grateful to have the opportunity to participate and appreciate every minute I get to spend meeting with my mentor. Thank you, everyone!"
