Mentorship Committee

Co-Chairs: Kim Kruse & Matt Clarich
Supporting Board Members:
 Molly Akers, Forest Woodley


The LWHRA Mentorship Program is a developmental partnership through which mentors share their knowledge, skills, information, and perspective to foster the professional growth of their mentees. The LWHRA Mentorship Program supports the Chapter's objective of "furthering the ongoing enhancement of a dynamic, diverse membership and, as a result, the HR profession through learning and networking." We give senior-level HR professionals an opportunity to "give back" to our members and our profession through a one-of-a-kind opportunity for collaboration, goal achievement, and problem-solving. We provide an opportunity for Mentors to earn up to 5 general recertification credits each year, and up to 10 credits over three years, toward their PHR/SPHR recertification through the Human Resource Certification Institute (HRCI).
