How are mentor/mentee matches made?
If you are a mentee, you will pick 2-3 people from a large list of available mentors. Once submitted, the Mentorship Committee will evaluate your choices and decide who might be the best match.
I want to be a mentor, but I’m not sure how. Is there training?
We have mentor resources available that mention suggested goals and objectives but no formal training.
What do I do if my mentor/mentee match isn’t a good fit?
If after a couple of meetings it is not a good match, the mentoring committee can match the mentee with another mentor on her list.
What are the typical challenges to a mentor relationship?
Common challenges are things like a commitment to the relationship, showing up for meetings, and neither party being open to change.
What do I do if my mentor/mentee isn’t coming to our scheduled meetings?
If this is a chronic problem by the mentor/mentee, the relationship will be terminated.
How do I sign up to be a mentor/mentee?
Signing up as a mentor/mentee is simple but is only available to our current members. Just head to our mentorship page and submit your application, program agreements and resume, and we’ll get you matched with an awesome woman in the program.
Once I am matched, what do I do?
If you are a mentee, you will receive your mentor’s contact information. It is your responsibility to reach out to them and set up a date to meet. If you are a mentor, your mentee will reach out to you to schedule your first meeting.
If I want to end the relationship, what do I do?
The parameters of your mentor/mentee relationship are up to you! If for any reason you want to end the relationship, simply let your mentor/mentee know.
What do I do if I have any other questions?
