Mentoring Program

The OATUG Emerging Leaders Mentoring program is an opportunity for young and new professionals to guide their professional and career goals with an OATUG mentor. Mentees will be matched with a mentor that will help them set goals in areas such as networking, career aspiration, being a new manager, or general professional development guidance in the applications and technology space. The program is designed to help facilitate guidance, support, and achievement among OATUG members within the applications and technology space. This program is only for current OATUG members, with the exception of current students. For more information on the OATUG Emerging Leaders Program, please review the Mentor and Mentee guides.
