Mentoring program

« Mentoring is a new adaptation of the age-old concept of reciprocity practiced by all cultures. Usual reciprocal practices are implicit, whereas the mentoring contract makes the agreements explicit. »  Elaina Zuker 

In this spirit, SIETAR Switzerland is offering its active members a mentoring program to assist with their professional development as part of our extended range of benefits.
