PeMento and the Power of Peer Mentoring
Wednesday, June 21, 2023
2pm Eastern (11am Pacific | 12pm Mountain | 1pm Central)
Description: PeMento is a radical creative experiment aimed at helping mid-career library workers connect to help one another, solve one another’s problems, and build a new kind of professional network. Independent of any association or organizational agenda, PeMento presents the provocative and timely opportunity for mid-career library workers to give one another what they need in terms of reflection, direction, and connection by facilitating peer mentoring relationships. The program seeks to bring together librarians from around the world to co-create a professional development experience unlike any other in libraries. We are actively seeking to create a professional network that is more powerful, open, kind, and brave in hopes that it may come to define the profession itself.
In this session, PeMento’s co-founders will discuss the development, delivery, and outcomes of our independent peer mentoring and professional development program for mid-career library workers. We will explore why peer mentoring is an important approach for today’s professionals.
