RIMS Lauches Mentoring Platform 7/24/2018


New Online Resource Set to Bridge Generational, Experience Knowledge Gaps


NEW YORK (July 24, 2018) — To further support the exchange of ideas, experiences and best practices in risk management, RIMS, the risk management society™, has launched Mentor Match. The online, members-only platform connects those interested in becoming mentors with professionals seeking guidance from the Society’s global community of seasoned risk management leaders.


Available via Opis, Mentor Match is a career development tool that can connect mentors and mentees based on their profile and preference settings. Mentor Match relationships can be built on criteria including: interests, specific topics, career level, location, background, professional credentials and more.


“There is nothing more rewarding than being a mentor,” said RIMS President Robert Cartwright, Jr. “Sharing professional insight and experience with another can have a lasting impact for both the mentor and the mentee. Mentor Match brings risk professionals together, strengthening the risk management profession for years to come.


“I encourage RIMS members to follow in the footsteps of the risk professionals before them, to give back to this professional community and get involved with the Mentor Match program.”
