Most successful professionals have mentors to help them succeed. The MLDP gives participants a head start at the highest levels in the corporation. During your first months in the program, you are grouped into cohorts of three and assigned two formal mentors. These mentors are accomplished and successful individuals in DuPont at the Director or VPGM level who are interested in seeing both the program and you succeed. Mentors usually provide assistance in problem solving, orientation and career development, but many times go further as your relationship evolves.
