Mentoring at ALTA
What is Mentoring?
Mentoring is generally considered to be a voluntary relationship that gives people the opportunity to share their skills, knowledge and experiences, both personal and professional.
Three Key Benefits for the Mentor
Three Key Benefits for the Mentee
How does it work?
To initiate a mentoring session, a mentee should proactively organise a meeting with an ALTA mentor in advance during or after the ALTA workshop.
Step 1: Choose a mentor from the ALTA mentor list.
Step 2: Contact him/her via an email
Step 3: Organise a mentoring session either virtually (e.g., Zoom, Kumospace or Slack) or in person.
Boundaries of the mentor relationship
Professional and ethical behaviour is expected at all times in a mentor relationship. A mentor and a mentee should treat the relationship with respect and maintain privacy/confidentiality of conversations. It is important that the mentee makes his/her own decisions and is responsible for his/her own actions.
*Mentors: When you are no longer accepting mentees, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to have your status updated.
