Much of economic development is learned on-the-job. There are few academic programs and professional development often is not offered at the specific time an issue arises. Many economic development offices are small, sometimes a one-person shop, so learning from co-workers may not be an option. A mentorship can provide support while you learn on-the-job and guidance to get through challenging situations.
The LEDNet mentor program is sponsored and powered by GROWTHMAP INFONOMICS in support of the economic development profession/industry in South Africa. You do not have to be a client of GROWTHMAP INFONOMICS to participate as a mentor or mentee.
