The Mentoring Advisory Committee (MAC) was created to provide oversight of the AACE International Mentoring Program and to promote participation and support of the mentoring concept within the Association. The current AACE Mentoring Program evolved from a joint pilot program conducted by the Diversity Task Force, Women in Project Controls Committee and the Young Professionals Committee in 2010. Building upon the initial success of that pilot, the AACE Mentoring Program employs a self-guided model that has gained wide acceptance among professional associations sponsoring mentoring programs. The Mentoring Advisory Committee sets the requirements for mentors and makes recommendations regarding the administration and promotion of the mentoring program.
AACE International entered into a partnership with the Center for Coaching & Mentoring, Inc. to provide the assessment and training resources such as the mentoring handbook to support mentors and mentees/partners. AACE also engaged Boxwood Technologies to adapt their mentoring matching and administrative system that facilitates the self-guided selection process. Boxwood Technologies is the leading provider of career center and e-mentoring software programs to the association community. Boxwood Technologies also manages the more robust AACE International’s Career Center.
