Presentation by Amy Franklin and Jennifer Smith
Several reports regarding mentoring were loaded to the CSW Xythos folder in order that members could review the reports and presentation material in detail. Dr. Franklin focused her presentation to the development of a mentoring program. Her powerpoint presentation can also be found on Xythos under the title of “Mentoring.” She noted that there are many factors in the development of a mentoring program and that the CSW would need to decide at what level of participation the committee should become involved in the development of a mentoring program. She also noted that a full mentoring program would need to have an annual budget to be sustained. Some points of consideration when developing a mentoring program are: • Needs analysis-what are the expectations, interests and needs of the community involved in • Defining the mentoring activities-would you have one-on-one meetings, group activities or • Oversite-What would be the role of the CSW if a mentoring program is created? Reported by Jennifer Smith: Jennifer focused her presentation on mentoring models. She spoke with Mr. Eric Fernette, Chief Human Resources Officer at UTHealth and it was noted that he too had been working on types of mentoring programs needed at UTHealth. She suggested that the CSW could partner with Human Resources or other offices that could sustain a mentoring program. She also noted that perhaps the use of UTHealth Retirees or Alumni as mentors could be helpful. The mentoring models discussed during Ms. Smith’s presentation included: • Group mentoring-Networking events with mentors. Possible need for fewer mentors under • Peer to Peer-Matching new employees with mentors across the campus or within their units • Speed mentoring-This could be events such as brown bags where a mentor or group of mentors could meet with a group of employees where the employees had the ability to cover topics with mentors as needed. This may be more feasible for the CSW to take on as a mentoring project too. • Reverse mentoring-This idea is where you are not mentoring new employees, but rather taking the seasoned employee and matching them with a new employee that may have new ways and technology expertise to share with the seasoned employee. • Needs Assessment Survey-The Professional Development Subcommittee were assigned to come up with a survey to include a list of questions that would go out to the UTHealth community to help the CSW decide what type of mentoring activity is needed at UTHealth. • Exit Surveys-any CSW brown bag events should include an exit survey for all participants to get a better understanding if these events are helping employees or what more is needed to address at brown bag events. Sub-Committees Selections for FY2013.

Discussion: The CSW Chair reminded the members that it was decided that a HCPC Teen Clothing Drive would be sponsored by the CSW. The HCPC contact information will be sent to the Chair of the Outreach Subcommittee who will provide information to what type of modest clothing is needed. It was agreed by the members to have the clothing drive in December for HCPC.
