PeMento and the Power of Peer Mentoring (Georgia Library Association)
Wednesday, June 21, 2023
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. 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.
