Practical Information and Matching Process
The event on November 9th marks the beginning of the program, offering you, as a mentee, the chance to introduce yourself and gain insights into the program’s details.
Following this event, the matching process commences. The Policy Board for Female Leaders in the IT Industry oversees the mentor program, responsible for selecting and pairing mentors and mentees. This selection process considers the questionnaire completed by participating mentees before the event and your presentations on November 9th.
The Policy Board strives to make the best possible matches for as many participants as they can. However, due to the increasing number of mentee registrations, we cannot guarantee a match for every mentee.
Once mentees and mentors have been paired, mentees will be contacted, and it becomes the mentee’s responsibility to initiate contact with their assigned mentor and schedule the first meeting (to be done within 30 days).
As a mentee, you can anticipate that your mentor will be available for a minimum of 5 interactions throughout the year, either through physical or virtual meetings and discussions. The new mentoring round commences in January 2024.
