BENEFIT – Professional Development and Networking
Growth, Relationships, and Opportunities through WIN (GROW) Mentoring Program
Provide knowledge and tools for mentees and mentors to be successful in leveraging relationships that foster career and personal growth for individuals in the nuclear energy and technology fields. Develop solid relationships, interpersonal skills, and business knowledge to drive organizational effectiveness and efficiency.
GROW Program Goals
A) Pair experienced nuclear professionals with less experienced nuclear professionals or students.
B) Share lessons learned, anecdotes, operational excellence, etc. relating to time in industry or academia.
C) Set and complete goals using a tracking system for accountability and sharing purposes.
D) Collect actionable feedback from program participants and use lessons learned to enhance the program.
The U.S. Women in Nuclear Professional Development Committee initiated a program for mentoring within the U.S. WIN organization for those individuals who wish to gain the benefits mentoring and being mentored can offer. The GROW program was piloted in 2021 and will launch as an official program at the U.S. WIN 2022 Annual Conference. The program requires a 12-month commitment with a monthly commitment of approximately one hour.
The purpose of the program is to provide personal development, building a learning culture, build connections and community within the mentoring network, develop leadership skills, support diversity and inclusivity, develop self-confidence and self-awareness.
