The Security Industry Association (SIA) and the SIA RISE Steering Committee are launching Talent Inclusion Mentorship Education (TIME) – a new mentorship program for early and mid-career professionals in the security industry.

“SIA’s new TIME mentorship program seeks to build a security industry full of diverse perspectives, people and cultures,” said Pierre Trapanese, chair of the SIA Board of Directors, in a prepared statement. “Through the program, we look forward to creating valuable learning experiences for both mentees and mentors, giving back and helping to grow an inclusive, talented security industry.”

Key components of the TIME mentorship program include:

  • Career development: Connecting early and mid-career professionals and students with established industry professionals to further career growth and talent development
  • Skill enhancement: Building a sustainable community of support through collaboration, networking and skill building
  • Recruitment: Attracting students to the security industry by providing insights on the wide array of career opportunities available
  • Executive leadership development: Promoting leadership development opportunities that will encourage diversity within the ranks
  • TIME is guided by volunteers from the SIA RISE Diversity and Inclusion Subcommittee – including Bobby Louissaint, technical operations solutions manager at Facebook; Erin Mann, strategy and marketing manager, multifamily at Allegion; and Eddie Reynolds, CEO of Iluminar Inc. – and with the support of SIA staff. The program will run for 12 monthly sessions and have semiannual orientations.
