Security Leaders Mentoring Program

Winning Connections to Accelerate Career Growth

Supported by the ASIS Professional Development Council Mentoring Committee, the Security Leaders Mentoring Program connects security professionals worldwide to a wealth of resources, advice, and guidance through one-on-one connections. Any ASIS member at any job level may participate in the program.


Program Status

ASIS recognizes that many in the security profession are on the front lines responding to a global pandemic. Therefore, we have decided to temporarily close applications, and matching of mentors and mentees has been suspended until early June when we will reassess this initiative. While formal matching is taking a pause, we encourage you to connect with peers around the globe through ASIS Connects, your local chapter, or through some of ASIS’s newly opened communities

Lisa Dolan, CPP shares her experience with mentoring and its benefits.

"To me there’s nothing more important than freely helping someone because I get so much more with the people that i’ve mentored. Some of them see me “oh my god” and i’m thinking “what, what did I do, I mean I just answered some questions you had and whenever you needed some advice I gave it to you. If you’re like my kids maybe you don’t listen to me, I don’t really know but…”. Um, yeah, I think I would encourage people no matter what age you are you can always still learn something and there’s always room for that. I’m a big proponent of mentoring." - Lisa Dolan, CPP.

ASIS International would like to thank the Professional Development Council Mentoring Committee for their leadership in establishing the Security Leaders Mentoring Program.
