IRISH EXECUTIVE MENTORING PROGRAM (IEMP)
In collaboration with
Launched by Irish President Michael D. Higgins in New-York in 2012, this collaboration between the Irish International Business Network (IIBN) and the Irish Network - New York (IN-NYC) aims at fostering engagement and promoting the development of new executive and entrepreneur talent in the Irish Diaspora through business mentoring and education.

at the New York launch of the IEMP
"Anyone who knows the Irish will know that this is part of our instinct to get together and talk and listen. But this network is more than just a forum in which to swap stories. You have developed a place where you can share experiences, find a mentor on a mentee and give back generously to our new and adopted communities."
With over 70 million people with Irish ancestry, Ireland has one of the most active Diaspora in the world.
More than a network, we give the Irish Diaspora the opportunity to give back to its community or receive expert advice and help for any project.
Based on volunteering, this programme is available to all citizens of Ireland and members of the Irish Diaspora worldwide.
If you have an affinity with Ireland and would like to engage with and contribute to this dynamic community, you are welcome to participate.
IEMP Volunteer MENTORS
Typically, mid- to-late-career executives and entrepreneurs, IEMP Mentors share their experience, provide free business advice and guide early- to mid-career counterparts towards accomplishing key professional goals. Mentors volunteer 1-2 hours per month, online or in person, for six months or more depending on the mentee and goal to accomplish, in service to your mentoring partnership.
