What is the IMA

Since 1987, the International Mentoring Association (IMA) has been the premier source for best practice solutions and support of mentoring professionals and their programs. The IMA promotes individual and organization development by using mentoring best practices in every setting. Our diverse and dynamic, worldwide organization unites individuals who are interested in the theory and practice of effective mentoring. Members bring unique experiences and fresh perspectives from their various fields of mentoring. Working together, we share a common commitment to increasing the impact of mentoring best practices, the performance of mentoring participants, and the efficacy of the organizations with whom we partner.

 The IMA is a 501c3 organization with a longstanding record of supporting best practices in mentoring through education, evidence dissemination, networking, and accreditation programs. The IMA has an established consociation with the University of Florida Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI), which serves as the academic home of the IMA. In addition, the IMA has an established MOU with the European Mentoring Coaching Council Global (EMCC) to continue promoting mentoring and coaching worldwide.
