HOW DOES IT WORK?
The pilot will cater a maximum of 5 mentors and 5 mentees per company.
A kick off session (at one of the participating companies location) will be organized to allow mentors and mentees to meet and greet and start their mentoring journey.
A check-in session will be organized halfway to make sure the pilot is going into the right direction and there are no major hiccups. A good opportunity to receive the first feedback. Online or in person, to be determined.
A final closing session will be hosted at one of the participating companies location, to reflect on the whole pilot and get some sharing stories from the participants.
Both mentors and mentees need to have a strong motivation to learn, to openly share experiences but also to give feedback to the ShineForward Steerco, so that this can become a programme in a later stage. To sign up, please contact your company representative. More information under the Contacts tab.
