FEB Mentoring Program Information
Your DFW Federal Executive Board Mentoring Program is here! As we know, mentoring is a well-established secret to professional success. Benjamin Franklin once said “Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.” This simple yet profound quote embodies the spirit of our FEB Mentoring program.
We have listened to your feedback and will be having dynamic speakers and interactive learning sessions this year. As we begin, the program will be largely virtual, with the hope of having in-person gatherings in the near future.
If you are looking for a way to expand your knowledge, skills, and abilities, join the DFW/FEB Interagency Mentoring Program to become either a mentee or a mentor. This one-year program matches mentees with mentors across all federal occupations. Mentoring is a power-free, two-way mutually beneficial learning situation where the mentor provides advice, shares knowledge and experiences and teaches using a low pressure self-discovery approach.
We hope you will both grow from and enjoy this experience.

For individuals, the DFW/FEB Interagency Mentoring Program is designed to foster collaboration, expand the breadth of knowledge about the Federal government, be a safe place for the interchange of ideas, build confidence of all participants, increase knowledge, encourage growth, lead to employee retention, and provide a fresh perspective that is not tied to an established agency’s mindset.
For employers, the benefits of having mentors and mentees are: improved employee interaction contributing to higher job performance, the development of partnerships and allies, enhances a positive environment and provides a clear understanding of expectations for mentees, increases the retention by increasing comfort levels of employees, and a higher level of employee commitment and loyalty.
