W4C Mentorship Programme 2nd Edition
– in Cooperation with Industry Partners
May – Nov 2022
to career success
The programme had a duration of 6 months, starting in September 2022. It was held online through a mentoring platform and in English.
The programme was held in collaboration with industry partners. The partnering entities provide volunteer mentors (women and men of all levels) to the W4C programme. Thanks to these companies and mentors, we were able to offer every participant the guidance they were looking for.
The mentors coming from the different entities provide personal and professional guidance, share their experiences, and help mentees identify and achieve their career goals.
Mentees are be selected by the W4C Team after completing an online application process, and each mentee is be assigned to a mentor based on their experience and career goals.
How do you match people?
Matchmaking is based on available candidates and areas of interest. We pair mentees with someone in a slightly removed role from theirs, who has more experience (typically between 3-5 years more experience) and has progressed their career in a similar way to the way you indent to develop your own career.
In order to work out who the right mentor is for a mentee, it is very important that mentees consider what their goals and objectives over the next 6-12 months are, and state them clearly in their profile when filling in the application.
What does this relationship look like?
You will meet regularly, at least monthly, to connect, discuss different career-related topics, update on major developments, and discuss successes, opportunities, and goals.
Share interesting events/opportunities on an ongoing basis.
Introduce your mentor/mentee to others in your network.
Share interesting articles, materials, or resources on an ongoing basis.
When will I be matched?
Matches are performed in the weeks previous to the start of the programme, and participants are informed by email. We try to find a mentor for everyone, but it ultimately depends on availability and compatibility.
