Longwood Mentoring Program
The Longwood Mentoring Program is a pilot program for FY22 that is brought to campus through the efforts of the Office of Employee Development and Wellness and the Black Staff Caucus Committee for Career Advancement. This program facilitates one-to-one mentoring relationships that will connect individuals across our unique campus environment (the Harvard Medical School, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, and the Harvard School of Dental Medicine) to help individuals involved expand their networks, gain new knowledge and insights, work towards career advancement and build new skills. Applications to participate as a mentee in the program are now open and can be completed on the Longwood Mentoring Program webpage.

Harvard IT Academy
The new Harvard IT Academy is a CIO Council, FAS Research Computing and DCE sponsored, multi-year professional development program.
Recent trends in IT management are changing the way Harvard thinks about information technology. In order to stay competitive and retain our valued employees, the IT Academy aims to enable each IT staff person to grow professionally and become a trusted partner to her or his team. The IT Academy is built on the belief that every IT staff member across the University (including technology employees at each school and campus) can grow in her or his area of expertise as well as building strong people and project management skills.
