Workforce Development Update: February 2021

by: Andrea Guzman, Workforce Development Coordinator

Mentor Program
On February 10, the NHPHA Public Health Mentor Program met again for the first time since October. We began the day with a presentation by Southern New Hampshire University  Director of Diversity Programs, Kayla Page, who spoke with the group about defining, reflecting, and working toward cultural integration. Participants said they enjoyed the presentation and wished they had more time. NHPHA was able to get great feedback about how the program is going so far. Mentors have helped mentees with job applications, mock interviews, networking opportunities for mentees with their colleagues, as well as guidance through professional and personal changes as we all adjust our plans due to Covid-19. The day ended with an opportunity for mentees to get to know other mentors, and make additional professional connections. Going forward, the mentor program will be expanding with additional options for meetings and activities. In early March there will be a training for the program with New Futures about policy and advocacy, and an additional training in April, before we all come back together again for the Celebration in May.

Career Panel Webinar
NHPHA is planning on hosting its annual Career Panel Webinar! This webinar is for those interested in learning about different public health careers, and the various directions a career in public health can take. This webinar can be very helpful for students and early-career professionals, or those looking to make a change. There will even be a Question & Answer session at the end to learn more from panelists about public health career trajectories. This webinar will be on April 7, 2021 from 3:30-4:30.
