One-to-One and Just-in-Time Mentoring

About One-One Mentoring

This member-only program will help you find and connect with an appropriate mentor to provide guidance, support, and growth in a safe environment. The mentoring system uses an algorithm-based approach, using areas of learning and interests from the profile to provide connection suggestions.

We offer a 3-month mentoring engagement and also the ability to connect for one meeting for just-in-time mentoring. You will have the opportunity to select the relationship that works best for your needs.

Engaging in a 1:1 mentoring relationship can be done in three steps:

  1. Create a profile sharing your learning interests.
  2. Connect with your preferred mentor match.
  3. Collaboratively create your connection plan goals.

You also have the ability to connect with a mentor as needed, or just-in-time, using the same process.

The more complete your profile, the better the match with a mentor.
