On Friday, Digital Risk officially commenced its second round of the P4 Mentor Program! Meeting at the Lake Mary office and virtually, 16 D-Risker Mentors and Mentees met to begin their six month journey of professional and personal development.
The P4 (Preparing Protégés through Professional Partnerships) Mentor Program is a companywide initiative created to help high-potential D-Riskers in their professional and personal development by pairing them with Digital Risk leaders as their mentors. The kickoff brought together over 16 mentors and mentees from various departments and offices throughout the company for an induction celebration. In fact, several first round participants are returning as mentors. Director of Facilities & Vendor Management Lisa Lee returned for a second term as a mentor, and program vet Jennifer Matacale, Fulfillment Manager, took on the role of mentor, paying it forward to her mentee, Quality Control Analyst Darran Hill from the Boca office.
“I am very excited about the P4 Program and can’t wait to see where this new adventure takes me and my fellow mentees,” said Supervisor of Transaction Management and program mentee Carrie Eanes. I am so thankful to be a part of a company that continuously has offered me and others ways to grow within the company, and this program is another one of those ways for me to grow!”
At the event, mentors and mentees met – some for the very first time – and Chief Operating Officer Omar Quddus and Supervisor of Human Resource Amy Huff offered words of encouragement about the power of mentoring relationships.
“It was so great to see the mentors and mentees meet formally for the first time,” commented Amy, the creator of the P4 Mentor Program. “I’m so excited for the second round to get kicked off! The program has been modified based on feedback from the first mentee group to ensure further growth and development of our future leaders.”
During the six months leadership development program, mentors and mentees establish strong mentoring relationships, participate in classroom instruction, perform a community service project, and craft and deliver a leadership book report. Check back for updates on the program’s progress.
