Talent Inclusion Mentorship Education


The Security Industry Association and its RISE Committee are launching a new mentorship program for early and mid-career professionals. The Talent, Inclusion, Mentorship and Education (TIME) program is designed to promote diversity, equity, inclusion and empowerment of underrepresented identities in the security industry by creating a well-defined pathway for learning and development.


To create and maintain a security world full of diverse people, cultures and preferences.


        Career Development: Connect early and mid-career professionals, as well as students, with established industry professionals to further career growth and talent development.

        Skill Enhancement: Build and create a sustainable community of support through collaboration, networking and skill building.

        Recruitment: Attract students to the security industry by providing insights on the wide array of career opportunities.

        Executive Leadership Development: Promote executive leadership development opportunities that will encourage diversity within the ranks.

About TIME

The SIA TIME mentorship program is designed to create a valuable learning experience and developmental opportunities for participants. Participation in the program does not guarantee mentees a promotion or selection into a future position within their company.

The SIA TIME mentorship program will run for 12 monthly sessions and have semiannual orientations. Participation in the program requires that the mentee and mentor:

        Sign a mentee/mentor agreement, including a code of ethics, at the beginning of their program

        Submit a quarterly program progress report detailing activities completed

        Attend an orientation and onboarding session, offered via webinar by a member of the SIA RISE Steering Committee.

        Complete a program evaluation form and help make recommendations to refine the program for future years
