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 mentorship pairs established a development plan to specify two goals to work toward during the year and meet frequently to stay connected.

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
