How does it work?
1-ON-1 MEETINGS & CHECK-INS
You and your mentee may choose an effective way for communicating with each other at least one hour per month during 12 months program cycle. We encourage you to use Google Hangout, Uber Conference, Join.Me, or GoToMeeting Petition, or meet in person based on your geographical location. In each quarter of the program cycle, you and your mentee will be required to check in with the program and provide an update on your status. You can access the check-in through this website, notifications from us via email, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How do I know if I'm eligible to join?
There is no prerequisite to be a mentor. However, by joining the program, you are eligible for the IBPSA-Fellow award.
How can I join?
Simply fill out an application. The process is as described in the section above. If it's still confusing, we will be in touch shortly to walk you through next steps.
What is the time commitment to be a mentor in this program?
It is estimated that you will likely commit to 14-16 hours per year. The program lasts a year unless you choose to participate.
Can I have more than 1 mentee?
Yes, as long as you can commit the time required to mentor more than one mentee.
How does the selection process work? Who gets selected to participate and why?
In the program's pilot through 2018 to 2019, we will select 10 mentees and 10 mentors. We select and recruit based on candidates based on the mentees' needs.
How often do I have to check-in with the program?
Check-in occurs quarterly (once every 3 month). You will receive an email from the program's administrator with a survey or a phone call to fill out a survey or status of your relationship. The program works to support you and your mentee's need and would appreciate continuous feedback from you and your mentee to improve the program.
If there is a conflict with my mentee, what should I do?
If there is any conflict or concern you may have with your mentee, the program is here to help. We want to ensure that you have the best experience through this program. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us via email and allow us up to 48 hours to respond.
