If you’re an industry leader — or want to become one — here’s your chance to learn, grow and forge meaningful relationships with others. This mentoring program harnesses the power of the group to help mentees set and achieve professional/career goals and forge new connections. Mentoring takes place one-on-one, and each 1:1 pairing functions independently, setting its own meeting dates, times and locations.

• Mentors and mentees complete the mentoring program application; the mentoring program committee uses the information provided in the match process to create mentoring pairings. Pairs are matched thoughtfully by our committee and the global nature of the European program allows us to hand-pick the best mentoring match for you from anywhere in the world.
• Each mentoring pairing is 1:1 to allow for confidentiality and individualized focus on the mentees’ needs and goals.
• Mentoring pairings share a common area of interest/focus, developmental area or type of goal.
• Key program information (definition of mentoring, mentor/mentee roles and responsibilities, goal-setting forms/other
    available tools and resources) will be shared with mentors and mentees prior to/during the kickoff.
• This is a mentee-driven program.
• Mentees set a goal at the beginning of the program; mentors help make progress toward achieving their goals.
• All mentors and mentees participate in the kickoff event; each mentoring pairing (1:1) determines its own rules/expectations
    and establishes its own meeting format and schedule.
• Pairings work together over the course of approximately nine months, meeting at least once per month to help
    mentees make progress toward their goals.
• Mid-year virtual networking webinars and speaker events will allow participants to connect, expand their network, and learn
    from mentoring experts.
• Buddy groups with experienced mentors are available to support new mentors with any questions that may come up
    during the mentoring journey.
• Dedicated connector team will check in every 3 months with each participant individually to assess mentoring satisfaction
    and provide support.
• At the end of the program, mentees assess the progress they made toward their goals, and consider how to continue to
    leverage/apply what they’ve learned.

Mentee or mentor?
Mentees are emerging leaders. They have a strong sense of their development needs and can identify one or more areas in which they need mentoring support. Mentees must have the time to prepare for group meetings, fully participate and help plan these sessions, and then “do the work” — that is, be willing to stretch, take risks and use resources to tackle their mentoring goal.

Mentors are seasoned executives with significant experience in the healthcare industry or related services. They have a keen sense of their own strengths coupled with the ability and commitment needed to guide their mentees. Mentors are willing to share of themselves — relaying stories and anecdotes from his or her career, recounting successes and failures, offering ideas and approaches and identifying tools and connections. Most mentors have experience in a director-level or higher position and/or have developed both individuals and teams.

How to apply - Two steps
1. All mentees and mentors must register by clicking on the button below. Mentees pay the mentee program fee now.

HBA membership requirements

• Mentees: HBA annual membership dues are separate and distinct from the mentee program fee and represent an
    additional charge.

2. If a mentee decides to withdraw from the program after registering, he or she must notify the mentoring program committee in writing by emailing europe-mentoring@hbanet.org by 15 February 2022. After that, no refunds are available, unless you are not accepted into the program.
