Partnership management

Governance, Partners, Webinar

Social, environmental, and economic needs are complex and require participation of a variety of stakeholders.

Project Managers Against Poverty (PMAP) has partnered with Humentum (formerly LINGOs) to run an e-mentoring network for project managers who work in international development and the third sector. Our MentorNet e-mentoring platform enables mentors and mentees to register and manage their profiles, to securely establish and conduct successful mentoring relationships. Mentees are able to choose their mentors. We have 40 volunteer mentors registered from 20 countries, and 35 mentees registered from 20 countries (at July 1, 2017). The service is provided at no cost to users.

  • Mentees register here to get professional guidance on your project management challenges! Watch the video “How to Find a Mentor”.
  • Mentors register here to give back to the project management community and make a difference! It’s also a great learning opportunity.

It’s time to find a project management mentor! Project Managers Against Poverty (PMAP) runs an e-mentoring scheme for project managers who work in international development and the third sector. The scheme enables mentors and mentees to register and manage their profiles, to securely establish and conduct successful mentoring relationships. Mentees are able to choose their mentors. It enables mentees to learn from another person’s vision, experience, and learning, and get professional guidance on the challenges they encounter. We have 38 volunteer mentors registered from 18 countries, and 46 mentees registered from 25 countries. To read about the benefits of the PMAP scheme and experiences of mentees see the Association for Project Management (APM) blog here. The service is provided at no cost to users.

To find out more please join us at a webinar either on Tuesday 25th April and Friday 28th April at 13:00 UTC (that’s 14:00 GMT) lasting 40 minutes. We will discuss what mentoring is about and why it is important, and how to find a project management mentor through our website. The session will be fully interactive with the opportunity to ask lots of questions.
