The OKC Chapter maintains an annual mentorship program. The goal of the program is to provide opportunity for professional growth and coaching to recent Health & Safety graduates and new professionals by pairing them with an experienced professional for interaction and guidance.
We launched the mentorship program in 2015. The committee selected six mentorship pairs and conducted two mentorship program events. The mentorship pairs established a development plan to specify two goals to work toward during the year and meet frequently to stay connected. Read more about the program and mentorship pairs in the September 2015 ASSE OKC Chapter newsletter.

Program feedback we have received from the mentorship pairs includes:
“Being a mentor in this program has increased my passion for the Safety Profession.” – Madonna Kenner
“My mentor has been great throughout this turbulent year, which has included me gaining qualifications as an ASP then CSP and losing a job and gaining another. My mentor has been a great prop, friend and genuine mentor to me.” – Matt Brunton
