In addition to an awareness raising programs in professional education bringing renowned practitioners and thought leaders, JSIE organizes a Global Peer Mentoring Network to connect our community members and elevate women’s and younger generations’ activities and participation in the international scene. JSIE continues to actively work on raising awareness worldwide in cooperation with domestic and overseas organizations with the similar visions and missions. For example, JSIE partners with naisA Global, and its naisA Flash Advice (“nFA”) provides professional network access for career development.
It is a mutual support system in where you can consult with other members regarding various life events that many of us experience and get advice from them. In return for that, you can give other members advice regarding specific issues that are relevant to your own experience. Furthermore, through this network, you can connect with such members who already have or want to have experience in working in different culture and other parts of world.
JSIE’s “Global Peer Mentoring Network” introduces you potential peer mentor(s) who matches you according to your “wants”. It is up to you whether or not you want to talk with the peer mentor. If you want to talk to her, you can make a request. And if the request is accepted, you can communicate with the peer mentor in the way you prefer, in person, Skype, telephone call, etc. When you are busy and do not have time for peer mentoring, you can limit the time per month or mute for 2 weeks. The only condition we ask for to maximize the value of this system is that you respond in good faith whenever you receive a request. We hope that you will find new friends (peer mentors) through this network.
“Global Peer Mentoring Network” Pilot Program consists of two networks, Global Peer Professional and Global Peer Youth. They are operating separately for the moment, and will be merging into one network in the future. For more details, please click below, and contact us for the Pilot program if you’re interested.
